I've been a little short on patience lately. Having a fever for a couple days in a row and keeping up with work has taken everything that I have.
Unfortunately, my world needs more that what I've had to give lately. I don't think it's all me though. I think my kids really have been crabby with each other too. Today I had enough.
My boys were just at each other . .. again. I banned them to their room, to stay. They are allowed to come out to use the bathroom, go to school, and eat. Other than that they are to stay there. I told them that they can come out when the room is spotless and when they can get alone with each other.
Dinner was a little better. Then, when they were done eating, they were back at each other . . grrr.
Tonight I am thankful that this experiment will work. I have faith. It has to work!! We have had so many talks on how to get along with each other. I think it's time for mom to step out of the picture a little bit and have them figure this out. Here's to hoping no one ends up getting stitches . . . my first sneaky trip up the stairs had them jumping on the mattresses in their mess of a room. This could get messy . . . but, I am thankful for standing strong here! They will get this!! I know they can!!
