If you haven’t been keeping up with my monthly goals, this month I have been working on giving my kids more hugs. This is my second week with this goal, but generally I choose a different parenting goal each month and do baby steps to achieve it. That’s just how I work best.
It hasn’t been a perfect week. I guess it never is a perfect week. It has been a great week until this morning when I woke up to my kids arguing and crying in the kitchen over a bag of granola. It started off the day on the wrong foot and now I’m feeling worn out and in a bad mood. I have to remind myself that sometimes there will be bad days, but I still need to keep trying.
I have still been working on giving my kids lots of hugs and it has been well received. Even today when we were all a little upset with each other, I didn’t let the girls go off to school without a hug. I came to sit down at my desk and saw this note at my monitor. It softened my heart, and it’s a good thing it did that!
On to next week. More hugs!
