Obviously what difference led to this, is what I need to figure out. I think I did. Last night I cleaned up after all the kids were in bed. Normally we all clean up together in the morning. I means much frustration, procrastination and avoidance. Yes sadly not the description of respect I wish I was describing. I was a not in a good mood. A bit P.O'ed. When like that I clean. It was more relaxing for me to wake up in a clean area. And I wasn't rushing everyone to get it done before school started.
Amazing how a chore can make life go better. So the next questions are:
- can I find the drive to do this every afternnoon?
- am I Ok with doing most of the cleaning, believing it is good for kids to learn such skills (they will need it one day)...not sure.
OK not a thrilling post but it is what it is.
On a better note I got four books from the library for the kids for canadian history. It is the "Dear Canada" series. I am excited. They cover so many events in history, and we remember stories so well. I think it will help. :)
