This morning I woke up thinking did I write my post today? Did it go live? What was it about? Then I remembered that the 2011 Blogathon is over. Phew!
Check out that pretty badge to the right that says I did it! I feel like a kindergartener showing my parent that I got a shiny star on my homework.
So it’s over, and I know that I said was going to take a break.
And I will.
But my fingers were itching to type something up…and I had to think about why did I want to blog when I so badly wanted it to be over?
Habit, moms, habit.
So today I’m thinking about all the times that I get frustrated at my kids for:
not picking up their shoes,
not getting their chores done,
not finishing up their homework…
It’s not been a regular daily habit for them so how can I expect them to be any different? Well, it’s my turn to reassess my expectations and find ways to help them learn a healthy habit. I’m the one that needs to be consistent.
And look, I blogged again…It’s a nice habit to have.
What habit would you like to see in your kids? in you?
