happy friday friends! hope you all have had a good week

things here are back to normal (there is that word again)

Lily was back at school and ballet this week and she was so happy about it

as much as we enjoyed spring break, she asked constantly when she would return to school (that is such a good feeling!)

we also had a playdate on wednesday

our friends M and R came over and we had a lovely time until Lily started acting out

things come pretty easily to Lily

she usually gets playdates, movies, treats, whatever because she IS so good

however, when acting out moments happen like on wednesday, those privileges that are so easily handed to her, get taken away

so yeah, i basically grounded her from playdates, candy and movies until she starts earning them again

i know she is only three but i truly believe that she needs to start learning that you don’t just get stuff for the hell of it

you actually have to earn it

i have even started talking to her about how some children have nothing. not even a bed or a house to sleep in

have you had those sort of talks with your little ones?

this weekend we will be doing more yard work and maybe venturing out a bit

who knows… we really don’t have anything planned

what about you? doing anything fun?

happy weekend!
