I guess I can do it!

This whole week I have had to take the kids to school and be home alone during the day and have J home at night most nights. He is at a meeting tonight for work. This morning I got up early as Red thought it was time to get up at 6:45 that is not normal for my kids. We are normally hanking them out of bed. I took the kids to school and then the two little ones and I went to Wal*mart and then grocery shopping. We got home just in time to unload and go get Monkey from school. Then it was home for lunch and naps. Monkey did his homework while I went through tons of clothes in the garage to get ready for the sale we are having next weekend. I am already regretting this but hubby really wants to have one so I am being submissive to his wishes. Then it was back to school to get GG and home for more homework. J came home and made dinner which was so nice since he was going out to eat for his meeting. Then showers and bed. I am so tired and ready for bed and it is not even 8:30 yet. I was planning on going to an outlet mall tomorrow for the Carter's 3.99 and under sale but I started thinking about what I was looking for and I don't think it is worth driving all the way there to get a few things for cheap. Maybe in September I'll go when the kids are back in school. This isn't a very exciting post but it is my life ;)

Also I wanted to say that we have been having some issues with language in our house. Some how, I believe from the older two Red has picked up name calling and his favorite to use is Butthead. We have been working on correcting this problem and I am getting really frustrated with this process of deprogramming him. Well it seems it has started to work because now when he gets mad at his brother or sister instead of hearing, "You BUTTHEAD" I hear, "You BUTLER." Must he call names at all? Any advice?

Oy! That is a lot.
I don't have any advice with the name calling, my boys are just starting with that. It seems to come naturally unfortunately. Beau goes around saying "You're bummit!" Which sounds a lot like "vomit"- It's not even a word, but the attitude stinks. Ha ha, I'll pray for us both. : )

Wash their mouths out with soap...guaranteed they'll never use that word again. : )

Try contacting me via email (the old address) and let's see how it works. I'm thinking of adding an alternate email if need be.

Otherwise, if you don't hear back in a day or so, just call me.

Take care!

Wow you had quite the day! Things I have to look forward to when I have kids in school!

As far as the name calling thing...it sounds like you are doing pretty well. Consistency is the key! Just keep reiterating how certain words should not be used. Good luck!

My friend uses Tabasco sauce, instead of soap because her kids liked the taste of soap.

LOL
