Yesterday there were two time-outs before 8 AM.
Today there were cuddles, giggles and good morning kisses.
Yesterday we had cereal and back talk for breakfast
Today we shared pancakes, strawberries and laughter.
Yesterday we argued over the TV, my phone and the iPad.
Today there was no mention of electronics whatsoever (SHOCKING!).
Yesterday we negotiated ad nauseam over the red vs. the blue shirt, teeth brushing, nose wiping, jacket wearing and picking up toys.
Today what was laid out was worn and you asked to brush your teeth and have your nose wiped. The toys are still all over the floor in the playroom.
Yesterday we were rushed and late for everything.
Today we had time to spare.
Yesterday there was no nap and therefore more time outs.
Today we read books and rested comfortably together.
Yesterday there were no unsolicited hugs.
Today was filled with “I love yous” and smiles.
Yesterday there was a lot of shouting followed by a tension headache and clock watching until bedtime.
Today there was a Chutes & Ladders marathon, Aqua Doodle fun and dancing around the living room.
Yesterday there was a shortage of patience, tolerance, peace and quiet.
Today was completely different.
