Good Morning Mothers........



Just a quick thought before I prepare to go forth out into the world..g> I am wondering how my children have grown up so fast; language -( not Shakesperian) technology, attitude...etc. They are 12... Good God. Now you know that I am blaming myself for this....working and probably too tired to invest of myself at the end of the day....But I know one thing my sisters...we need to slow it down.

Balance would be nice, eh ? The computer, ipod, tv, are too much of a dominating factor in their lives. I'm coming up with a plan, lol.....Seriously, enough is enough......



Hope you all have a fantastic day.........Sandra

Well, there still is no use of the computer....and now they are out riding around the neighborhood on their bikes  . Thats a good thing right ?  One would THINK  that ! Yesterday when I arrived home all the kids were at my house...good...this was at 5pm...they begged me to allow them to go for a quick ride;  I said ok....be home by 6. Finally one of the childrens parents called wanting to know where they were....to make a long story bearable the darlings arrived home at 7pm.



We live in a secluded woodys area...many adventures to be had !  They went somewhere they knew I did not want them to go....now what ?  lol  geez, I am tellin ya this is challenging.



I guess more will be revealed...



Have a fantastic day

I think I shall add a comment on my own post,  lol....maybe like a journel, sort of g>



Anyway, I have taken away the computer from my daughters for an indefinite period of time. This started a couple of days ago due to their poor attitude towards claiming any responsibility  towards picking up after themselves...enough is enough. Is it really possible that they "forget" EVERYDAY to pick up their clothes or whatever it is that they leave lying around.....I think not. But thats what they tell me...g> 



Truly, I will not go overboard with this....nonetheless they will be held accountable for their action; or non-action.......



Off to work....have a great day
