My blog this month;
How many pretty autumn pictures can I reblog that say October?
I notice everything. And by everything, I literally mean everything. I notice when someone stops hitting me up like they used to. I notice when the way someone talks to me starts changing. I notice the little things that people do, and the little things they used to do. I notice when things change, and when it’s no longer the same. I notice every single little detail. I just don’t say anything.

"When we hit our lowest point we are open to the greatest change."
"You wait a lifetime to meet someone who understands you, accepts you as you are. At the end, you find that someone all along, has been you."
"The hardest part [of not punishing] is the shift we have to make in attitude. We have to stop thinking of the child as a “problem” that needs correction. We have to give up the idea that because we’re adults we always have the right answer. We have to stop worrying that if we’re not “tough enough” the child will take advantage of us.

It requires a great act of faith to believe that if we take the time to sit down and share our real feelings with a young person, and listen to his feelings, together we’ll come up with solutions that will be right for both of us.
There is an important message built into this approach. It says, “When there is conflict between us, we no longer have to mobilize our forces against each other and worry about who will emerge victorious and who will go down in defeat. Instead, we can put our energy into searching for the kinds of solutions that respect both our needs as individuals.” We are teaching our children that they needn’t be our victims or our enemies. We are giving them the tools that will enable them to be active participants in solving the problems that confront them— now, while they’re at home, and in the difficult, complex world that awaits them."
If you say
Both kids are teething.
Each kid has two bottom molars coming in.
They are both in the worst moods. Hayden especially.
'I know it's safer to rear-face but…'
Then you can stop talking. I tried to inform you, you obviously listened, and then untimely decided you didn’t care enough about your child’s safety.
