Shorter Term Goals

After re-reading through the last few posts I thought it was necessary to relieve the perfect parenting (stick a finger down my throat and gag myself) image that I might have given off.

And so, I thought I'd write a more...um...shall we say...shorter term parenting goal list for my week with Ezra:

1) Don't lose him at park
2) Don't allow him to eat all the cousins food while at the park
3) Don't allow him to throw sand
4) Keep him from getting hit by a car at the park
5) Don't allow him to throw rocks
6) Don't allow him to throw anything
7) Don't lose my temper at him
8) Don't allow him to push Ella
9) Don't allow him to take Ella's toys
10) Don't resort to two year old behavior myself
11) Don't allow him to pull Ella
12) Don't allow him to touch Ella
13) Don't allow him to climb on the tv cabinet
14) Don't allow him to climb on his dresser
15) Don't allow him to eat the cat food
16) Don't lose him at the library
17) Don't lose him at the grocery store
18) Don't lose him at the post office
19) Don't lose him. Period.
20) Don't lose my temper with him.
21) Don't allow him to paint the carpet.
22) Don't allow him to use Ella's toothbrush.
23) Don't allow him to use Ella's cup.
24) Don't allow him to use Ella's spoon.
24) Don't allow him to eat Ella's food.
25) Don't put him up for sale on craigslist.

Some days I am able to be intentional in my parenting.

Some days I am just focused on keeping him alive.

That is okay, the above are completely allowable at our house : ) & we don't even have a cat!
