Update: Dishwasher is completely dead, new dishwasher is in the garage waiting until Wed pm to be installed. Sigh. That seems like a long time, but at least I still have a dishwasher!
My dishwasher is not working...he's watching law and Order...

*Sigh* You know that song, "I'm my own Grandpa?" Well, I'm my own dishwasher.

Thank kind of behavior is enough to ruin your good mood. I really hate it when people seem to go out of their way to do that. I think that kind of behavior warrants a letter to the owner or manager.

Take heart, and find rooms with doors that close. That might not be easy sometimes, but give it a go. I also found (if you have a high tolerance for mess) that some of the simplest things will help everyone get along.

1. Make cookies together. Give everyone hunk of sugar cookie dough to cut shapes out of.
2. Make playdough and give everyone some cookie cutters to play with.
3. Try funky stuff like sucking jello up through a straw
3. Make finger paint with liquid dish soap and tempra paint and let them paint a window with it. BONUS: When you finally wash off their artwork all you need is water! Soap is already there!
4. And finally, come visit often! There's lots of us Mom's who've been exactly where you are and will offer you virtual hugs when you need them. Many is the time I've come here for comfort when I felt like the meanest mom in history. This place is family, and we're here to be your sanity break. {{{{{{sarah}}}}}}

Edit: sarah, check out this thread starting on page 32, post 315 and on for a page or so. You'll see what I mean.


Awwww Alix...thanks for being so kind and understanding,it really really makes u feel like u r not alone when u see other moms telling similar stories about their kids and offering great advice,u r right,i really did feel those virtual hugs from u guys and guess what,they make me feel so much better,Thanks for all the support and yeah i know whenever i feel like the world is falling apart,this is the place to visit...
You know i do make cookies with them quite often,although it does make cleaning the kitchen later all the more difficult,but i guess its worth it...and i'm planning on going for that funky trick u told me about,with them.It sounds just like something they would love to do,who knows it might take their little evil minds off some mischief for some time....

Hope it helps sarah! I've worked with kids of all ages for some time and honestly the trick is to keep them BUSY til its time to crash. LOL!

Anytime you need a hug, come on over!
