Don't Forget to Remember This!

So tonight...I am attempting a new discipline is a great one (remembering of course that lots of ideas are great, implementing them is another story)...The book was recommended to me by a counselor and it is called "Parenting With Love and Logic" Faye & Cline...ok...anyway, it is a method of teaching personal responsibility. Here's the scenario: Youngest Boy doesn't want his pillow turned a certain way so I flip it over while saying "Son, I am not sure you are going to want to sleep on this side because the print may be a little rough"...he takes this to an extreme and decides he doesn't want this pillow case at all and I am to get him a new one...NO WAY BUCKO! I hold my ground and go for the prize in reasoning with a 3 year old: "Son, you have two choices, you can either sleep with this pillow on the other side or you can sleep without a pillow." He chose to scream and yell at I chose for him, pillow gone. Now its not like I am torturing him, there are plenty of nights I get rid of my own pillow for comfort. Ok...moving on 30 minutes...I walk in the bedroom for youngest girl discipline (kicking her bed...) and tuck her back in, she REFUSES a pillow...because Youngest boy doesn't have one...WOW! That was sweet...I hope they always feel this way about each other!!!

Went camping this past weekend...more on that later, IT WAS AWESOME and reminded me I want to live a simpler life. I am not sure God meant for us to be so insanely busy...?
