Morning Disagreements

March 4, 2010 at 1:37 pm (Uncategorized) ()

My mornings never go the way I want them to… Needless to say, today’s was no different. Miss A and I got off to a rough start- her shirt AND jeans were on backwards, she was stomping around the house demanding to know where her tennis shoes were (because I wear them after her), her hair was a rats nest pulled back in a pony tail, and her teeth weren’t brushed. I really wanted to scream at her as I looked at the clock and noticed there was less than ten minutes till her bus arrived.

This is not how I envisioned my child going to school. My child would take pride in how she looked and smelled for that matter. It almost hurts me that Alia doesn’t share the way I feel about those things. I’ve always known she’s more of a tomboy but I still want her to be hygenic and I don’t want her to be made fun of because of her slack ways…

In the end I ended not yelling at her for being so slack this morning. Instead I took her cheeks in my hands looked her straight in the eyes and told her to wake up and start paying more attention to what she is doing. And then I sent her into the bathroom to put her clothes on the right way.
