Allergy season has hit. I so *strongly dislike* this time of year!!! It zaps me of all energy, patience, sanity, thinking ability, will to live... Can I stay in my bed all day with the windows closed and the curtains drawn? Please? I am struggling to keep up with my four clinglings, the housework, the laundry, blogging...and, in fact, I am not. Don't pop over for a surprise visit...I will not let you in the door! :) We can have a nice chat outside where I will have sneezing fits and itch fiercely. HaHa. Such fun.
It is no secret that I have two challenging children. They are much more clever, brighter and quicker then I will ever be. They run circles around me...leaving me dizzy. So there are few moments when I feel that I have truly "won" as a parent. Don't get me wrong. I win...many times, but that is because I am the mother and not because I've outwitted them.
Today I outwitted them and it was great! Made me so happy! lol!
They were fighting over a toy knight...both saying they had it first...yadah yadah. I said to give it to me since they were fighting over it.
Then I said, "How about I cut it in half and you can each have a piece to play with."
The first said...Yes! Cut it in half.
The second said...No. Don't.
The second got the toy and oddly enough the first didn't complain. Parenting with the wisdom of Solomon.
