Everyone’s Different

FINALLY, a controversial post!  I got one yesterday, without even knowing it.  Much of the fallout came on facebook.  People didn’t think it was right to keep C home from cub scouts.  I’m still fine with it, but I will probably think more about it and perhaps talk with C about why he’s doing the thing (lying) that keeps him from GOING to scouts.  I take lying very seriously and hence, he has a pretty serious punishment to go along with it. :)

But I just love how I can get input from my blog.

I’m not the kind of girl who will get her feelings hurt if you post something against what I thought.  In fact, I really enjoyed mulling over the comments while I was making dinner yesterday.  Just giving me something to think about as I shred cheese.  Maybe that’s why I’ve shredded my thumb so many times (true story).

But I also love that each mom is so very different, and how God must have a time trying to match each child with each mom/family.  I do wonder why my children were sent to me.  What quality did I have that would make me best to parent them.  Do you wonder that?  I wonder that a lot as I hold newborns (my own newborns, to be more specific).

In other news my husband left with a suitcase yesterday.  I really do think this whole leaving me thing might actually happen.  Darn you Ireland.  So very appealing with your leprechauns and green.

    He gets to go to Ireland….in march…..and you can’t go too? What the crap?! So not fair. :)

    Okay, back to cub scouts. Personally, my kids are not big fan of scouts….so if one of my them was doing something naughty, I think I’d send them as punishment.

    But they are girls. Well the two oldest are. my youngest is a boy….and a baby. He likes everything….

    So my question: is the method working? Meaning is it changing the behavior? How long do you give a method…and if it’s not working when do you decide to abandon it and change it up? Lying is definitely troubling.
