Humility, it's a tough game...

Tonight we were playing Monopoly Junior, and my youngest (who for some reason always wins this game!) was making comments like "Ha Ha! I win again! I'm so glad I won again!"

Hmmmm.... how to teach a little humility.

Kaylee is at that (and I use this term VERY loosely) tender age. The age where you want them to be building self confidence, to have pride in their accomplishments.

We've tried modeling, explaining the RIGHT things to say, and many other ideas... but she just isn't on the humility train.
I suppose time will come, but man... it's a tough ride.

Babysitter, Babysitter, My Kingdom for a Babysitter!


Why is it when teenagers are finally old enough to babysit, they no longer have enough time to babysit???

I've called TOO MANY. No one available. We're not even talking a Friday night...

Thank goodness for nieces. And sisters. And friends. And no wonder date night gets postponed...
