Bad Decision Avrie!

So we were all ready to go to the basketball game. Avire was "suppose" to be sleeping. All I had to do was go in and wake her up. When I went in, this is what I found . . .





Avire, Avire, Avrie . . . What to do? What to do?

NOTE TO SELF: NEVER take a break. ALWAYS stress out and NEVER relax. Because when you do relax, THIS is what happens.


WAIT - scratch that. REMEMBER you have tried that and you almost went insane. So lets try this note thing again.


NOTE TO SELF (revised): Take a DEEP breath and sing a happy song (to try and shove all of those cuss words you have been saying in your head - OUT of your head). Calmly walk her to her bed and ask her if this was a "good decision" or a "bad decision". When she says "Ine Sorry mom, I didn't mean too" (with the biggest puppy dog eyes you have ever seen), try and remind her that we need to make "good decisions", not bad ones.


. . .


So after more then one (a LOT more then one) of these incidents. Kenadee decides to be the mother in this situation (because the real mom was in her room screaming into the pillow:).


She - sweet Kenadee that she is - decides to make Avrie a "Good Decision" chart. She is going to save up her candy, and for every three "good decisions" Avrie makes, she will get a piece. For every three "bad decisions", I get to take something away.


So far, good decisions are winning out - but it's a close race :)








Oh and this morning . . .




She got into the glue.
BAD DECISION AVRIE!!!!

Ha, ha. It's always funny when it is someone else having to deal. Keep singing those happy songs, or screaming in your pillow. Whatever works. Good thing she is adorable!

I would come unglued (no pun intended) if my kids did that. I would be screaming in my pillow too. It IS a good thing she's adorable.

Sorry, but I couldn't help but chuckle! What a nice sister Kenadee is being all nurturing but using the opportunity as a teaching moment as well:). Good luck.

Isn't it always worse when you have a new house?? I feel like mine is "broke" in a little but I don't know how I will handle big messes!! You are hillarious and have such a great attitude!

I think she is such a cutie. Good luck with her. By the way Parker locked himself in my dryer the other day. I think he is on his way to being an Avery.
