I had an aha moment this morning with my kids.
Now hear me out-- I am NOT a dumb person and will not pretend that I will not have to have this aha moment again in the near future but really...
Emily did something and I said to her..."Emily if you do "x" again, I just don't know if I will be responsible for how I react."
and it hit me. YES, I WILL.
I don't care if she has done it for the 50th time that day. I don't care if the kids are HELLIONS that day. I don't care if they have told a thousand lies, lit the house on fire, sold my I phone and racked up thousands of dollars in debt....
I AM RESPONSIBLE FOR MY REACTION TO IT.
