watch what you say...

Okay, I admit it, a couple of my kids have gotten into trouble for using inappropriate words on occasion...and occasionally I know they got them from me...of course our latest "buttcrack" and "butt" I can say are not ones I use frequently so I can feel pretty confident about trying to "squelch" those without feeling like a hippocrite.

...I also have been the recipient of my own words coming out at [appropriate] times and used against me so I try and watch what I say...but, I know I need to do better.

...last night was a little bothersome...Addison was finding her "voice", I was frustrated, and Logan decided to whine a lot while I was trying to fix dinner. I must have said something I shouldn't have in the heat of the moment, because while we were sitting down to dinner, she looks at me and in this small voice says "Mommy, I'm sorry I am driving your crazy"...okay, Bad MOMMY #1 here. I apologized, but ugh!

Just think about it this way....whatever you said triggered a feeling in Logan that she recognized as a need to apologize. That's a good thing! She's really young to be able to do that! Hope you got a good night's sleep last night! Debra
