I pray and brainstorm.....
I think I have gotten too relaxed around here and have not been vigilant are careful in keeping up schedules, written and unwritten. I also noticed some certain little girl who does not do well with that kind of a lifestyle.
Soooo, my vacation from being relaxed and go with the flow is over. Done.... GONE.....
WHY? Because I have seen somebody slipping back into old behaviors and last night I blew it by getting angry with her. Yep, me, the hypocrite who says not to get angry and be patient. :/
One of the great things about having RELATIONSHIP is that we can talk afterwards. And talk we did. I apologized to her and she apologized to me; then we pinky promised to start over in a new way.
I am so thankful that she has come so far that we CAN make errors in judgment and it wind up being ok, without her climbing up a tree or questioning our love. :)
I never thought of seeing success through my own failures! LOL
So, we had a family meeting (dad and mom first) and then the girls and it is settled. We are going back to written schedules that are tangable and spell out each expectation for the day.
Our days will be more structured and our sweety that needs it most will know what to expect.
Sooo, my relaxed lifestyle, go with the flow experiment is over.
But it is what is best. :)
