    Had a doozy of a test yesterday :). Happy to share another great WW.

    These pics all made me laugh! It’s so easy to laugh when you’re not the one parenting in the moment ๐Ÿ™‚

    Our little guy is only 13 months and we do lots of redirection! We try not to overuse the word “no” and I’ve taken to having him find “yesses” when I need to redirect. It seems to be working so far ๐Ÿ™‚ I LOVE the picture of the twins squabbling over the bike, LOL!

      Thanks, Joy — it makes me smile now too! It’s less funny in the moment sometimes,of course! Though that time with all of them screaming, it was one of those laugh-at-the-isanity kind of moments. I had a lot of those for awhile!

    I love that even in these types of moments, Mama’s (and Daddy’s too) are willing to strive to be peaceful and gentle in their parenting.

    Amanda, you are a brave, brave woman.

    great collection! I love the one with markers. Sooo cute, every last one of them. : )

    these are adorable! definitely make me smile and feel better about those hard moments!

    Thanks for sharing all these great photos! In times like this I sometimes feel there are two ways for me to go — get mad or just laugh at the insanity. I try to go for the latter, though that doesn’t always happen, unfortunately! But I try!

    Amanda โ€”ย The other day, Mikko started drawing on his OWN face with a green marker (washable, too, thank goodness, given his Sharpie addiction). Just very calmly, he’d draw on the paper then on his face, then back to the paper. It cracked us up. He looked very warrior-like, and similar to you two. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Alicia โ€”ย Been there! Sigh.

      Well Heidi did draw on herself first, then Piper, then me. And later, all over the bathtub (much easier to wash). I think he’s just prepping himself to meet his new sibling ๐Ÿ™‚
