I'm always wondering if you're as calm and serene about parenting as you seem to be when you write.Kendra, you are my new favorite person.
I was in my bedroom when I read her comment. I had shut myself in there (with Firefly) because I could not take the insanity that was 4:00 p.m. Puppy for one more minute without completely blowing my top. A reverse time out, if you will.
So my answer is going to have to be, "No." Hee.
(I'm an analytical person and I think that's probably what comes through in my writing. I'm always thinking about what my emotions instead of just feeling them.)
(Puppy responded to my reverse time-out by sitting outside the bedroom door trying to draw me out. "Mama, I'm taking off my diaper...My diaper is on the floor, Mama...I'm playing with the soap, Mama...")
