    Amen to that. Kids model their parents and if we don’t have good habits how can we expect them to have them? Or if we aren’t consistent about chores, etc., how can we expect them to do that work all the time? This is something I have to do a better job of holding myself accountable for Jan, thanks for the reminder.

    And good to see you’re still blogging!

    Hi Jan, I keep joking that it takes kids about 10 years to learn the morning routine even though it’s always the same, especially the brushing teeth part. My youngest is almost eleven and we’re still working on that.

    I so agree with this — I blogged yesterday, and I want to blog today — but also need to do other writing: WIP, freelance, etc. Still, blogging is such a habit! I once heard that it takes three weeks to form a positive habit, so I guess 31 days qualifies :)

    I’d love to see my kids make focus and patience a habit (of course I need to model it more!). What I loved most about Blogathon was forming a writing habit. I did take yesterday off, but am looking forward to coming up with my June blog ideas. I admit I’m also looking forward to catching up on some old posts I missed during the insanity of May!
