Every once in awhile I give up something just to see if I can. It is usually something not so good for me (think junk food). One time I gave up movie theatre popcorn for a YEAR! And this was pre-Ellie when I was seeing a movie about every weekend. That was a toughie.
The kicker is that I promise Jesus I won't do whatever it is I said I wasn't going to do. I mean, you can't break a promise to Jesus!
I made a really hard one last week and am blogging about it now because I want to cheat. Really bad. I promised Jesus no soda from Jan 1st til my birthday Mar 3. I don't drink a lot of pop, about one a day but man do I love it. I did this in an attempt to drink more water. I hate water. Blech. So, if you are reading...say it with me...
"You can do it!!"
On the Ellie front she has learned some new things recently:
The correct usage of "nevermind"
How to play Simon Says
She likes peas
How to ride a scooter
The joy of pretend play. She just asked to play house. She wants to be the baby and I can be the mother. Such a change of pace. Not.
I think we are on a upswing of behavior. We have been going through a rough patch. Can you say 2 1/2! But things are calming down. As for potty training... that is a whole other post.
