Life is good

Wow, has it really been four months since I last had something to complain about? Pretty much. I used to always have things come up and finally had a way to displace some of the tension. I guess I've learned to just take it as it comes and try not to let things bug me as much. A lot of that has to do with my kids, especially Hailey.

Hailey is in Kindergarten now and has started to pick up some habits from the kids at school. Unfortunately, most of those are not good and cause her to have a bad attitude. This gets me upset and then it escalates from there. Meghan will pick up on it and then everyone is not in a good mood. So what to do? Well, I have to be the adult and learn to control my emotions better. They are watching me and feeding off of that. I'm trying to remember that they are still young and have a lot harder time controling how they think and act. Sometimes I forget they are still kids. Part of me wants them to grow up so we can have better discussions, but then I think of having teenage daughters and go right back to hoping they stay where they are.

At least my son hasn't got there yet. He does have a temper, but he is usually pretty happy. Except of course when his sisters take what he wants to play with. Well, he'll just have to learn to deal with it. I don't think that is ever going to change.

So life is good. I'll try to post more often, and hopefully be a little more positive.
