Yikes! This morning I promised myself to start earlier on everything: getting up, getting out the door, going to bed, anything with a clock on it.
I am holding my ground on No Electronics Until The List is Done.
The List is made each day, at John’s request, and works more profoundly on paper than in the air.
I do doing pretty good on No Re-Negotiating, and give myself a C+ on Just Say It Once.
And, this oxygen mask process: “You First, Then Your Child” also works with Peace, Joy, Time-Outs, Walking Away, No More Nagging, on and on.
I must put this mask of Calm on me FIRST. Then on my child.
The other way round doesn’t serve my joy or helps me make good decisions on how much I let the stress of each event pile up on me.
Peace to us all,
