parenting

Ahh The joys of parenthood……. Actually today I observed three techniques of discipline that work for me, and have…….counting, distraction, and sending to their room…….SO this shows me if I extend some other forms of discipline, that they may get use to it, and listen..:) …..Just got back from breakfast at Harry’s with my parents, and Kaylee…….I love Harry’s…….When i drive through La JOlla so many memories resurface…….It was really nice….My mom is recovering from knee surgery, and doing well…….My Daddy is not responding very much and it is breaking my heart. I am going to visit him as much as possible…He seems tired of living. 🙁 🙁 I feel that when it is his time I won’t be able to get up from the floor for days………Kaylee even noticed it today and said he smiles when I am around him…..The family is coming out so that is nice, and hopefully something he looks forward to…..Today we are doing something different-the pool….ha ha. Yesterday there were about twenty kids and fifteen moms at the pool. My kids don’t want to go sometimes but when we do they always have fun…I also notice throughout the day when they complain of boredom, if I let it go, they find something else to do………There is me and my codependency and trying to please, entertain etc…..THis weekend Dyane and I are going away to either desert or La with kids. I want to take them to Universal Studios some time…….and DIsneyland before summer is over. Although last time in summer when we went to Disneyland, it was so hot and crowded, that I dubbed it the most miserable place on earth. :)……….Kaylee asked me to buy her a training bra yesterday. ha ha. Her neighbor who is three years older has one. I got her one just for fun, and she thinks she is so cool in it. Now all of her friends want one……If she was like Mommy nothing came up until fifteen and then there was a lack of material….ha ha…….Hence why I like my cleavage today. Gets me in trouble sometimes but I like being a curvy woman…..a lil less curvy would be good…….My back has been bothering me. I think it is from wearing high heels and maybe some other activities. I am trying to strengthen my stomach daily and hold my posture up, which helps…..i finally started doing weights again, which is the best anti aging thing to do. I need to regain some more muscle as I lost a lot last year with surgeries……..Enough shallow talk…… Some friends and I are going to the races on friday in turf club. There is a concert after so that should be fun…..Dyane’s bday is coming up as well as many friends. Dyane is getting a limo for twelve to go to Temecula to the wineries……….Excited……..Again enjoying my summer a lot with my children and fortunate I can…..Kaylee starts cheerleading on monday and I am not going to lie. I am a lil nervous about all of the schedule and time commitments. That is what mothering is all about……putting them and their activities first….as long as they want to do the activities…………Read an interesting article about parenting . One of the things it said was that there is a fine line between building children’s self esteem and giving them an inflated ego……..Tough one for me since I am so complimentary and loving…..Oh well balance and a work in progress as I always say……….but I want to seize the day and not feel like I have a lot of regrets in my life….

From my-life
