I am running a day late... gotta work on that.
So my biggest thing that I want to work on this week is playing with my sons and not yelling as much. I have a bit of a temper. It rarely comes out in public. I tend to take it out on my family. Especially when I am tired or hungry or one of any number of excuses. I've been working on it for a long time and I need to continue to work on it/focus on it. My goal is to only yell when I am cheering/happy or in shock or in an emergency or maybe to get my DH to get me a new toilet paper roll. Basically I don't want to yell in anger. There may be times when I need a little scream but there is a way to do it appropriately. I need to take a deep breath when stressed or hurried and not snap. I know I won't be perfect at it- probably ever- but I can be better.
These are the things I need to do to help me:
I need to clean more often so that the mess and clutter don't overwhelm me or make me angry.
I need to plan more activities to do with my sons so they will behave better and we can have more fun together.
I need to go to bed earlier.
I need to turn my computer and the tv off during the day. Well, maybe I can use the computer once or twice but not for more than half an hour at a time.
I need to declutter my house.
So my baby step goals for this week are:
have the front room clean when Matt gets home from work
organize the boys room
Use http://www.notimeforflashcards.com/ to do preschool time each day. A craft, A song, An activity- spread throughout the day.
Get down on the floor and play animals or cars.
Singing time with Asher each day.
I signed up for two free classes through First Five to do with Kaden. One on Tues and one on Wednesday.
Set up a play date at the park.
Be in bed by 10:30
One movie a day for Kaden.
Declutter 15 minutes everyday in Kitchen and front room.
Ok.... Ready, Set, Go...
