This poor blog is so dusty! I shelved it when life became way too busy. Life is still busy, but I miss reading and writing so here I am!
I am working with a family of eight boys. The age range is from 2 months to 13 years. At first it seemed a bit overwhelming, but now it just seems like a normal setting. I guess you can adjust to most things. One thing I find entertaining is the 4-year-old when he is angry. I know he is trying to best me, but he just cracks me up! Here are two examples…
Zan’s mouth was running overtime on this day and he was being very sassy. I finally just calmly told him he was to go to his room and spend some time thinking about the way he was acting. His reaction?
“GOOD! I need some alone time! It’s all good!” he storms upstairs to his room.
I had a good giggle at that one.
A few days later, he was in mess mode. Dumping bins of toys on the floor and leaving them. I told him he had to pick up everything he dumped before he was allowed to do anything else, including eat lunch. His reaction?
“GOOD! I love picking up! LOOK, I’m picking up!” his face was red with anger as he slammed things into containers.
He thinks he’s upsetting me, but man oh man he makes me chuckle!
