On a different note, my MOPS group had a playdate at a local park this morning. The weather and temperature was great. About four moms and their kids came. The kids had fun playing on the slide, fort and swings while the moms talked. We had a great time!!!
Hannah has gotten grounded again. This time for disobeying a direct command (DO NOT CLIMB THE TREE!) and for lying about it. She ripped a hole in the seat of a pair of jeans and got a cut on her arm while climbing the tree because of Gracie's dare. She and Gracie (the friend of Hannah's I keep in the afternoons) have been told to stay out of the cedar tree for numerous reasons: the branches aren't very big; there is a HUGE squirrel's nest in the next tree; and a bird's nest with eggs in the next tree; etc. Since they decided not to listen to me, they both have been grounded. Hannah has to stay in her room for a week. While Gracie is here, she cannot go outside or watch television. (I can't remember her punishment for her house.) Today while shopping at Sam's, they decided not to listen to me again. (Before we even got out of the car, I told all four of them what they could not do so there would be no confusion on their parts.) So, because they disobeyed me again Hannah lost her evening snack privileges. I am still debating on having the girls pay me because of what they did but how much and if I will do it is still being determined.
