It's all me....

9/7/11 Wednesday 8:15 am

I yell and holler at my kid to hurry up when in fact it's me that got her up & in the shower at 6:40 to be out of the house by 7. She wants to sleep in later so I let her assuming she will shower faster in appreciation but no. A tired kid in a warm shower = sloth! Haha! What erks me is that we have had this "please hurry so mom doesn’t go all sideways on your behind" discussion A MILLION TIMES since she started showering alone. Yet morning after morning it's me freaking out in the morning, and later having to apologize to her. I ask if she has anything to apologize for too....she does, but tragically our morning soap opera will start aging tomorrow morning.

Stepping back and thinking about it makes me realize it's all about me. I let her sleep in, and sometimes even stay up later then usual playing one of those horrible video games she loves. I let her not follow through with what she says she’s going to do. I let her walk past a pile of clothes in her bathroom for days without picking them up. Really, it’s all about me.

SHE’S JUST LIKE ME!! It makes me sad, I don't want her to ever feel like this.....I mean like she is a quitter. Like nothing ever goes right for her. Unappreciated and unaccomplished; Just plain old sad, tired, and discouraged……it’s an ugly feeling.

It’s all about me…….my choices will shape my morning, my afternoon and my evening. My choices will determine my future success or lack there of.

It’s all about me………so what am I gunna do about it?!?!

Really's all about them emoticon

    Yup I broke the news to my girl this morning that the new "wake up" time for her will be 6am and that she will no longer stay up past 8pm until i see her waking up on time without the attitude. lol! Honestly she dosnt have much of an attitude at all, just really good at laying still and ignoring me accompanied by a few moans and groans! Hahaha!!

    I use to get up at 5 am (sometimes earlier, and loved it) Totally on my list of things to change! First I am working on getting home after work and FIRST THING making sure, dinner is started, lunches are made, dishes and laundry get going and clothes/etc are laid out and ready for the morning time! Lets call it my "get a jump on tomorrow" after work routine! LOL!

    I am feeling that as I raise my daughter and see that she is me. And the only way to change that is to show her differently. The mornings suck lately. So I challenge us to make one change. No matter what.... we get up in time to NOT rush. This is huge and will in fact change the way our day goes. For me that magic time is 5 am. The weekends are for sleeping in. Natalee needs up by 6. So that she doesn't hace to rush. It doesn't make for an easy day for them either. One small change that has nothing to do with weight loss. (Even though it always does. ;-))
