Manic Monday - Will



The first thing I thought of was the battle of the wills with my adorable little boy. Although he never attempted the above while he was at home, he always kept us on our toes.

My adorable little blond curly-haired, blue-eyed little boy was a brat when he was little. He called a dear friend of ours a "big fat rat," at the age of three; he tore up an adjourning campsite while on vacation with his grandparents; sat on the stage with his arms crossed, making a real sour face, during a kindergarten performance while all the other children stood and sang cute little songs. Oy!

It's a fine line, raising kids. You want to break their will but not their spirit!

That is an interesting note I got from you...managing will without breaking the spirit!

Mine was a little angel until his teenage years...then he turned into a little monster. He's okay now. Have a great MM sweetie. Big hug. :)

Mine is cute as a bug and smart as all get out, but one live wire. His lack of focus and motivation is frustrating.
