April

Sounds like a great way to spend the weekend! So happy for you and your daughters!

It was lovely, at least parts of it, thanks April. It's hard to have four days at home without some ruffles unfeathering. There's always life in life.

I hope you and your daughters had a lovely Thanksgiving as well.

Hey there I am browsing thrught your posts as I se e more I feel I want to add comments:) My kids are 9 and 5 and I would really love for them to have their own joys. I think seeing them joyful would make me so happy. Right now my older one has behavioural issues at school, not many friends, several discipline issues...list goes on. So I am very sad for him and waiting for things to get better for him. My younger one is too serious for her good I feel...too adult-like and I am waiting for her to relax, spread her wings....

Rina, raising children is so very hard. My insight as a mother and a teacher is that you can do your best but more than that you cannot do.

Regarding your older child, you can see if there is a reason for the behavioral issues; I'm not sure what services are available where you live, but there seems to often be reasons for kids acting up--they generally don't do it because they want to. It's actually not fun to be picked on and not to be doing well in class.

My older daughter was serious when she was little and she's serious now at 21. It is the way she is, but that does not mean that she is not happy. She just has always been self-directed, as she still is.
