Children Can Hold You Hostage

She’s only five years old but she is well aware that she is in charge. She developed a love for PBS kids and she is rather aggressive when she wants it. Time spent not allowing her to have it when she is pushing, shoving and hitting to get it has turned into a nightly promise of before bed. Thirty minutes before bed time she takes over my computer now to play with a curious monkey doing math of her own free will. That is after a day of school, therapy and self imposed learning with a fisher price bicycle or pad that hooks to the television. Getting her away to do her math and writing on paper, that’s a bit trickier.

Finally Free~

She decided that now I am no longer her hostage and I can work, after some discussion of waiting her turn. I got a new project over the weekend that could not have come at a better time and is due the 21st. It is simple and they understand the difficulties of trying to work with small children in tow. I am hoping that since there is only a therapy appointment and an errand today (no school) I can get the majority of this project done to move onto the next and catch up on my neglected blogs.


I am now rested, it would seem that exhaustion got the better of me and all I could focus on where correcting the behaviors. The stress gave me a nice all over back ache that a nice soak in the tub with my spa jets did not entirely relieve. Any idea how hard it is to isolate a single muscle at lower outside of the back when you only have four jets in a garden tub? Oh heavens, I am more spoiled than I thought. I still say I deserve a hot tub, a shot of whiskey 

I meant a glass of wine……..who am I kidding I meant whiskey. I never claimed to be a lady :-P.
