Badly behaved children

Monday, October 20, 2008

Today went relatively well. Shelby has issues with being a consistently well behaved child when alone with me and I've tried so many different methods to keep her on track - I'm very frustrated. But anyways, she didn't blow it so bad I had to cancel anything. Her girlfriend was sick so she had to cancel today.

Horseback riding went well - a little different than I expected since they had me brush the horse, do the feet, put everything on, etc. They have some really awesome horses at the stable who let us pet them.

We watched, while doing other things, the game that Steve and Shane were at then took the dogs to the dog park and met up w/some friends and their 2 dogs once they knew we were there.

We did a late dinner, showers, etc. after we got home.

Steve and Shane returned back from their all day adventure. They left the house at 5:30 a.m. and returned around 8:30 p.m. Apparently Shane was displaying some of HIS worst behavior ever...

I can't stand this - I feel so guilty as a mom that my kids aren't positive, respectful children 100% of the time. They KNOW better, we've worked hard to instill good values, morals, they know how God wants them to behave...

Anyways, was hungry today but didn't do anything I wasn't supposed to as far as today's eating plan went.

    Hey our children are human and just like us adults they have off days too. I know that doesn't always help when they misbehave or are rude in public but just know that all kids do this sometimes and we all as parents probably feel the same way.

    So you had to groom the horse you rode huh!?!! I hate to say this but that is normal and is part of "therapy" of getting to know the horse. It is really smart actually because the horse becomes more comfortable with you as well. It is mandatory at our place to do the "grooming" things before riding as it helps the horses health and gives some bonding time as well. If a rock is in the frog of a horses hoove and you ride them they will turn up lame.

    Smile - it's ok for the kids to have an off day. I know, just makes you feel like it reflects on you but just remember that they do have minds of their own and you can't be responsible for every word that comes out of their mouths or all their actions!
