So, what do you all think of this lucky winner I have chosen this fine day?!
Onto a different subject.....
Do you have any idea what I am dealing with the very minute as I type these words???? I have a 6 yr old in the next room over (her room) having a crying fit. About 35 minutes ago, we were painting on a taracotta pot. Putting flowers, butterflies, bumble bees and ladybugs on it. She decided that she didn't like how something of hers turned out and that's where it all began. She wanted to throw it away. I told her she obviously needed to take a break. I proceeded to clean up and told her to put the pot outside to dry. That's when she again went to put it in the garbage. Just before she did, I reminded her that if she threw it away, she will pay me for the flower pot and then go to her room. She of course retained herself. She continued the attitude and crying that I told her to go to her room and write about her behavior. She of course gave me the continual "It's just not fair".
So now, 35 minutes later she has finally calmed down. I tried to stay as calm as possible. Normally I would have been all worked up and would have just made matters worse but this time I managed to contain myself.....with just one outburst cause my nerves were running on overdrive. I had to release some tension. I think I'm allowed, right?!
