Weekending & Shizz [3-13]12:00 AM
+ I was a single mom over the weekend with the husband away in Cali. He sends me pics like this with gorgeous weather over there...while it's like, -12C here, snowy, windy and cold as fuck #rude.
He's still sexy though, even if he is in spandex.
seriously, he takes way more selfies than I do.
+ I believe that every kid should have chores that should be done not for money but because you're a member of the house and because you're a decent human being. Kayla has to set/clear the table for each meal, sweep the floor, fold (everyone's) laundry, put her laundry away, keep her areas tidy and organized. In the coming months, she'll be washing dishes (too clumsy at the moment) and doing actual laundry (in fact, Saturday was her first lesson).
+ Almost done my poncho; I'm so close I can taste it.
+ I've been
Then he said "you've made me waste two days of my time....making me read that book, Red Rising! It was so good I ignored everyone and couldn't stop reading it!". I slapped the table hard (making everyone jump --> LOL) and legit hollered "I TOLD YOU SO! NEVER QUESTION ME AGAIN!"
+ The parent/kid muay thai program is so much fun. Kayla doesn't particularly like training with me since I tend to push my partners hard.
+ This article - 100% yes. This article should be the first thing that is handed out in the maternity ward after a baby is born.
While Kayla is important to me, she is NOT put on a pedestal (since that's my spot in this family because duh) nor is she the most important person in this family. You teach your kid that he/she is the most important, you will therefore raise an entitled brat who thinks the world owes them something, who doesn't take any responsibility for anything and will basically expect that they don't have to do a damn thing in life.
We teach Kayla that she must earn respect; that she isn't above anyone (no one has that kind of authority/power) and that her time or what she has to say isn't more important than anyone else who is waiting or speaking. You want something that's already being used, you wait your turn. You want to say something while others are talking, you wait your turn. You have no idea how fucking annoying it is when I'm speaking to an adult and not only do they allow their child to interrupt our conversation but they answer them. I just turn around and stop talking or walk away because I guess what I have to say isn't important.

We're bracing for a storm that's supposed to roll in tonight and will last until tomorrow evening.
