Fall break is here and I'm enjoying the relaxing mornings.....too much, in fact. It's nearly noon and I'm still in my nightgown. (I'm not in bed still, cleaning has been going on) I get so excited in the upcoming weeks to a school break. I dream about the projects I'm going to work on, the recipes I'll make and the time with my kids. Then I starting making my lists and planning all the wonderful days we'll enjoy together. Before this break, I'd had enough of my boys attitudes, lack of cleaning/picking-up of their messes, the blame game and their attitudes! (did I mention their attitudes!!!!) I planned a Mom Boot Camp for the boys. I made a huge list of what I wanted done and lessons to learn. The only thing I changed up from my original plans was how strict I was going to be with them. I decided to only take 1/2 days for the work and it's worked out pretty well. They've even had days off. We've also talked a lot about how to behave and treat others. I will say that our home has already been a lot quieter and much more cooperative. Just writing this is getting me more energized to finish out our last week of fall break....and maybe get dressed!
