Today I declared it relax /movie day with my kids. It is supposed to rain all afternoon so everything we had today has or will be cancelled. Some days you just a day off to rest. Especially during Summer when its a lot of late nights due to baseball games and sleepovers.
What does this have to do with the No Yelling challenge I am in the middle of? EVERYTHING! The kids are tired, I am tired, which means we need an extra amount of patience and grace today. I know the kids are worn out from the busy schedules and thus behavior may not be up to par. I am not excusing negative behavior just being a little more understanding when I have a crabby child or a whiny baby. I am also more aware that’s because I am tired I may be more quick to snap at the kids and snapping could lead to yelling :(.
So, today a little more grace will be given. We will get thru the day with the goal of not yelling 5 days now and continue chugging along!
