Well, my oldest is on it with just a few kinks. My 9yo needs me to have more patience so we stopped after day 1 and will try again tomorrow. Lol

I hope your feeling better!!  We all need to remember to take it easy from time to time.

I actually yelled at my youngest yesterday for sitting in the middle of the floor twirling her pencil.  I had to take a shower and told her to keep going.  I got out and found her on the floor and not at her table.  She wanted to know if she needed to vacuum before she finished her work.  REALLY we have never done chores before finishing work.....NEVER.

We are trying different discipline tactics and they seem to working to save my sanity.  My SO and I have butted heads way way to many times over the last 2 years.  I have handed all discipline over....and use the "we are going to talk to daddy about this" with them.  It usually snaps them back into reality.  LOL  I even have a child doing her sister's chores for 2 more days because she called her sister dumb.  We aren't tolerating it!!  Because she feels her sister is "dumb" she gets to do her chores so that her sister can focus on her academics....daddy's creative punishment.

I hope your sanity returns soon!!
