One of my parenting struggles is learning how to live joyfully.
So many things wear me down, especially having to repeat myself over and over. I know it takes a lot of teaching and patience for kids to learn, but simply knowing that doesn’t automatically make me patient.
I decided to try something new and created a “Roadmap for Peaceful Living.”
I called it a roadmap because Kiddo loves transportation so much, I thought that it would make it more appealing for him. We worked on it together. Note the street sign shapes that Kiddo picked out for our numbers!
Now Kiddo likes to tell me that he is “expressing gratitude,” but usually he tells me this when he is taking responsibility. Um, perhaps a vocabulary lesson is in order.
Myself? I’m working on number 4.
