I am a 31 year old working mom. I have two children ages 6 & 8. I am newly remarried (two years and counting) and enjoy spending time with the hubs! Even though life is busy I try to take a little time to show what is going on in my world. This blog is mainly for daily happenings, finances and such. I have created a whole new blog at Butcher, Baker and Candlestick Maker to chronicle my creative sides. You will find recipes, cooking adventures, crafts and a whole lot of digital scrapbook layouts.

I hate School!

Well that is at least what my darling child Emilia tells me repeatedly. I do find it funny that this comment is mostly made when she has a bad day at school. She had a great Monday and Tuesday with no cards pulled, but on Wednesday she pulled three cards. She has a tiered level of punishment when she pulls cards:

1 card = no desert
1 cards = no dessert, no tv
3 cards = no dessert, no tv and has to stay in her room.
She cried and cried last night having to stay in her room, we talked several times about how "unfair" her punishment was and how "mean" I was being. She told me that she didn't like school and that she just wanted to stay home with me. I think her hyper behavior tends to make her feel excluded from the other children. Hopefully she will learn better way to control her hyperness and be able to overcome. We shall see
