Yes, I just referred to my daughter as a monster. Feel free to remove me from the "Mother of the Year" list of nominees. Because up until now, I've been a perfect mom.
Anyway, it's really bad and my depression appears to be very directly related to her attitude. So, if anyone has any advice on how to make that transition to full-day school a little less rough as quickly as possible--I would really appreciate it.
What does all of this have to do with Joyful Moments, though? Well, for my birthday Sweet P (and HH) got me a gift certificate to have pedicures done together. And I thought tonight would be a great time to go. We almost didn't make it due to a severely bad attitude, but we both pulled it together so we could be in good spirits and enjoy each other.
And we did. Sitting side-by-side, getting our toenails painted was such a fun, girly Joyful Moment. She's definitely more of a tomboy than a girly girl, so this was a very rare opportunity. And it was seriously, so FUN!
Wishing you all sass-free, girly girl Joyful Moments!
