Today didn’t start well and it never got better.
I want to blame it all on Adeline (who was about two hours short on sleep), but I suspect I could have handled things better.
It’s just frustrating when I warn her, then she continues a behavior, then she gets a consequence, and then she IMMEDIATELY repeats the behavior. Really?
The logical consequence isn’t working. I took away her Baby as a consequence, which worked, until she repeated the behavior again. I can’t take her Baby away if it wasn’t returned, so what then?
And poor Lucy kept getting put down in the middle of meals so I could take care of Adeline acting up, and that makes me feel rotten for Lucy.
For now, I have a giant Hershey’s bar (thanks to my super awesome husband) and a glass of wine. And if tomorrow isn’t any better? Well, there’s still a half of the Hershey’s bar left.
