Last night, I informed PM that in the morning I expected him to listen so that I didn't have to yell. We discussed how he should get dressed when I tell him to without goofing off, etc... So, this morning was the real test. I didn't have to yell at him at all. I started to loose it a little with DQ, but quickly regained composure.
Why am I telling you this? Because I am sick of yelling at my kids all the time to get them to do what I want. Since I haven't been feeling well, I have been yelling more and more. So, beginning today, I am making a conscious effort to not yell and to be a better mom. I'll keep you posted on my progress.
Oh, and I am having my tonsils out, but I do not know when yet.
