Postscript regarding fights

December 14, 2010

Our conversation on Sunday night had consequences better than I could have ever imagined…

The Child powered through a mountain of homework that I never thought she’d finish. Not only did she finish it, she finished it before her bed time and did a good job of it! I can’t remember the last time I saw her so genuinely proud of herself. She was downright giddy! (So was I!!)

I think that for the first time she figured out how to buckle down and get her stuff done without lollygagging, getting distracted, messing around, or goofing off. She discovered just how fast she really CAN do her homework – and how amazing it feels to sit down, do a good job, and be done. DONE!

And we were both rewarded with something that has been very rare indeed… pure, unadulterated, happy cuddling. 



  1. Yay! Nice job Haley….and Mom!

  2. May I please have the exact conversation or can you record it to be played in my son’s sleep?
