Sometimes I feel all I do is correct B.
"Bristol please don't put the WHOLE roll of toilet paper in the toilet, No, B you cannot scale the stairs, B stop pulling Gage's tail, Get out of what used to be my flower bed..."
The list goes on.
The other night I was thinking about this and though necessary it isn't fun for me - or B.
How would you like to be told "No" or corrected constantly.
So I decided to make a plan to have more "positive" experiences with her. More fun.
This morning was just that.
We took a quilt and A TON of books outside, sat in the sun and read. She read to me, I read to her, we read to Gage.
Then we COVERED our driveway with sidewalk chalk. ( My husband LOVES this... not really)
We traced hands, each other, did hopscotch and drew about 200 hearts.
Finally, B decided to go swimming - fully clothed.
It was a nice morning toped off with Grilled Cheese and homemade chocolate milkshakes.
I need to do this more.
It was fun. :)
