And since I'm venting a little...I will continue with what happened Saturday. It was a lovely day! Well, the start of it was anyways. We took a trip to Bellevue to see the Seattle Temple with the Primary. We walked around and enjoyed the grounds and spending time with our Primary friends. Then it was time to go. Easy right? He he he ... On the way back to the car, Garrett (who obviously played to much Wizard 101 that morning) decided to whack Sam with jacket sleeve, which led to Sam's squelching, loud scream. I informed Gar that he would be grounded for the rest of the day (No games, TV) and he had a complete meltdown. Crying on and on and thrashing his body like a fish out of water. I warned him that if he continued to act like that he would be grouned for the whole week. He didn't quit! And then I added another week when he punched Quinna Sunday. So I get Wizard 101 all to myself for two weeks. Quite impressive for an 8 year old.
I didn't intend this to be a whaa whaa whaa post when I sat down...I think it's time for me to take a breath and remember they are just my cute, wonderful, lovable 'kids' who happen to have bad days like I do - they are not evil minions sent to torture me when I'm trying to be a spiritual, loving, nice Mommy.
