The Glass is Half Full

This was AFTER I had already given her a bath...back into the tub she goes!

Look on the bright side: Ashlyn successfully got all the yogurt out of the container! AND she got REALLY clean from two baths in less than two hours.

I TRY to focus on something positive rather than the negative when the girls complete an activity incorrectly. For example: if Ambria puts her shoes on the wrong feet, the positive is that SHE put on her shoes.

This can be difficult for me to do sometimes, especially if it involves a mess or if we are in a hurry, but at least the girls will get more of a positive message.

The glass CAN be half full in the midst of chaos.
