Good Mothering

Good Mothering Lesson # 58
(This happened after weeks of hearing about poking and getting tired of it.)
Child #1~"Mom she poked me in the eye again.."
Me~"poke her back"
Child #2 crying covering eye~"Mom he poked me in the eye"
Me~Looking closer "wait a minute.. can you see???"
The good mother lesson: don't tell your children to poke anyone in the eye..tell them to stomp on the foot.. You don't need it to see and you get over it quicker ;)

We are learning and hopefully we will all survive.
