Breaking the Rules
Most of the house got cleaned today and the rest will be tomorrow. Then I can start all over Monday. It just doesn't seem fair.
I miss my DH. He is stranded in CO with no phone b/c they do not get service there. Kids keep asking about him. Ella thinks he is coming home when she goes to sleep, she doesn't grasp time.
Lisa, I think it is rude you are having a getaway and won't answer your phone. You had better be having fun.
We are breaking our house rule of no kids in our bed. Since Dad is gone, I am allowing each child to rotate out on the weekend nights. I swear it is better than Disney for them. We are working on being "normal". This is a very normal thing to do. Just like hugging your sibling when they are hurt, happy, or you are sorry. I noticed a few months ago, they do not touch nicely, only hitting or abusing. We are practicing alot of things. Humor is another. They do not know how to joke around and they shut down if you play with them. I have been giving them funny comebacks and wait patiently for them to repeat them. It is no longer funny when they say it but it is coming a bit quicker in the last 2 days for a few of them. I have to remind them they are not in trouble amny times and keep a grin slapped on my face til it hurts. I know it is weird but how can you have fun when you can't tease or joke?
