Emma has had kindergarten preview the last 2 days. This morning she came down wearing a shirt that I tried to get her to wear to preschool on numerous occassions. She refused every time citing, "It's ugly" along with tears and body jiggles that resembled a tantrum. Now that it is almost too small it is a new favorite. It does look quite cute, but why does she have to refute EVERYTHING I say until I leave it alone and it becomes her idea???? :) If I were to say the sky is blue, she would say it is orange. And then IF I came around and said the sky is orange, THEN she would say, "No, it is blue." She just loves to think I know NOTHING!! I thought that didn't come until the teenage years?!! I tremble at the thought of what is to come with that girl!! ;0)
Many of you think I am just an unorganized person! But oohhh there is so much more to it than that. It takes a lot of time and effort to be so proficient at procrastination. For instance, do you think I could get the timing of my child running out late to the bus every morning if I gave just a small effort at it? No! Everyone else's kids are waiting at the bus stop up to 10 minutes before the bus is scheduled to be there. That doesn't take any effort! And it uses up valuable time. HA! It takes a great deal of timing to get my child out the door at precisely the moment the rest of the kids have finished boarding. The bus is not here at exactly the same time everyday! Duh!
I have friends who make me look bad. They are crafty, motivated, energetic and full of good ideas. They constantly have FINISHED projects-something I don't even know the definition of. I think it was a great day if I got the kids dressed! So, this blog is my attempt at reverse psychology to motivate myself - or in case that fails it is a good way to gripe at them for making me look bad!
