-still weaning myself off coffee
-At several points when my kids asked me to do something with them, I decided to just go with it and enjoy it, rather than fretting about the dishes that I could be washing or the floor that I could be sweeping. And I’m thinking of it more as a reward for me too, rather than just something that I am doing for them. Like, when I go over to mums because I just want to chat and chill out. Or when I have coffee with a friend because I want to feel connected to someone. Wake Up!!! I have two little people right in front of me who can serve that purpose! I think need to remind myself, that just because they are my work, doesn’t mean I can’t also enjoy their company, and get my dose of laughs, fun and connectedness by being with them!
-I made dinner ahead of time so that I could hang out with my son more after school.
-Putting compost into the garden bed became a fun family activity
-I’m working on really listening to, and taking an interest in my son’s ideas
-I worked hard at being a rock. I stayed calm and responded politely when my son spoke to me rudely.
Not so good stuff
-I yelled over something petty pretty much first thing after my son woke up.
-I didn’t find time to exercise
-I still feel I want to connect more with my son…… perhaps some tickle fights tomorrow?
