Yesterday we got over fifteen inches of snow here in CT.
All the kids were home from school.
Number 5 was still recovering from (f*cking) Norovirus, and I never even got out of my pajamas.
By 7 pm last night, this is what things looked like.
I was reduced to letting Number 5 style my hair.
Needless to say, after about fourteen consecutive days of at least one kid being home sick from school followed by a snow day with every single one of them home, I was presented with just about every parenting challenge known to mankind.
I know I wasn’t alone yesterday.
And two questions came to mind.
First, when it comes to your children and their behavior, what are the things that drive you crazy? What are the challenges that you face right now?
And then the other question…
What are the characteristics and life skills that you are really hoping to teach your kids? What are the things you think are really important for them to learn?
I’m working on something, and I’d really love to hear your thoughts! (And I’d also love to hear what state/country/area you live in if you are willing to share that info too)!
The kids fighting challenges the living hell out of me, and one thing I’m hoping to teach my kids is accountability, because I think we are seriously lacking that as a society.
Okay! Can’t wait to hear your thoughts!
