    This is actually a very good thing to do. If you have a kid that loves to color on the walls then either paint the actual wall with blackboard paint (chalkboard)/witeboard paint (the dry erase stuff) or you can get a huge piece of plywood, paint it and put it on the wall. Also preferably have a border around the area, in case of accidentally going off the painted area. Can act like it's a picture frame for their artwork.

    Re: What are you thinking about?

    Yesteday, Chickadee got in her first "big kid trouble" (as she put it)...I let her go outside to play in the common area with the other kids her age, and when I went out to have her come in, she wasn't there because she had decided to go to another friend's house. Now, normally, this would be okay (since I know where all these kids live, etc), but she forgot to come and ask for permission (and yes, I'm pretty sure she actually forgot, since normally she's good about it). So, after about 20 minutes of yelling for her, and knocking on doors (Sharkbait was napping), and even asking the *seriously up to no good* group of roving older kids (they hadn't seen her, but helped look for her and promised they would send her home if they saw her)...the older sister of one of her little friends comes back from walking the dog and says "oh, she's at our house".

    By the time I was done giving "the lecture" (you know..."I was worried sick, you could have been lost or stolen or fallen into the creek dead! I was almost ready to call the police"), the poor kid crying. It was really sad...aside from that "oh crap" sinking feeling, I was pretty sure that she was okay and at a friend's...and she was utterly heartbroken. Not that she had to come inside and couldn't go back out to play (although that was disapointing)...she was crushed about the idea that "I might be sad and worried thinking that something bad had happened to her."

    So then I felt like I kicked a puppy. But you know what, she deserved it. AND, I hope she remembers feeling like crap--its worth it if she doesn't do it again. And if she doesn't, she won't play for the week.

Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    In my entire life, I think Mom spanked me twice (Dad, never). Both times it was for that offense.

    And it was because she was so scared that she freaked out...
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    My baby has taken to not pooping for three or four days at a time (doc says its normal). But when she does, she frigging explodes. I got poop all over my hand today because I picked her up with one hand round her leg kinda and the diaper just leaked all over me, it was that dang full. Doesn't it hurt to hold that much crap inside? And she's not constipated, it's all soft and gooey and runny and gross. And green.

    I wondered if he could ever understand that it was a blessing, not a sin, to be graced with more than one love.
    It could be complicated; of course it could be complicated. And it opened one up to the possibility of more pain and loss.
    Still, it was a blessing I would never relinquish. Love, genuine love, was always a cause for joy.

    I used to just get a scissors and cut her onesie off when that happened. I swear, all kids do this.

    We have two - one 5 and the other 3. It seems that they have accurately determined where their boundaries are and now the game is all about seeing how close to limits they can push things before their parents lose it. Oh, and the 5 year old has realised there is such a thing as a legalistic argument much to the delight of their younger sibling.

    The next person who tells me that my God is a psychopath because being filled with love and wrath at the same time is impossible, I will strongly suggest they have children before making statements like that :-)

    My daughter is sleeping on her tummy. It scared the crap out of me, with all the SIDS lectures the doc gives, but she's rolling herself there and I can't make her roll back over without waking her up.
