Today I decided to just let you have a few of the tidbits I am loving this week!
The first is my genius moment when I thought why not warm Ezra’s food in the warmer like his milk! DUH!
I have been following Courtney over at Women Living Well Ministries and fell in love with her post about disciplining her kids. Here are a few I love and will be using in our house now. 🙂
- For disrespectful words, back talk or fighting with a sibling – I have them cup their hand over their mouth for about 30 seconds – this is especially useful in the car lol! Proverbs 30:32 says: If you have played the fool and exalted yourself, or if you have planned evil, clap your hand over your mouth!
- For mean words – lose all sweets and treats for the day (or a few days) – “If you can’t talk sweetly – you can’t have sweets!”
- Not keeping their hands to themselves – I have them fold their hands in their lap for a minute or so.
- Exceptional disobedience, defiance, or physical fighting – a few swats – “Folly is bound up in the heart of a child, but the rod of discipline will drive it far from him.” Proverbs 22:15
I also found Gina and Jenny from Our Trendy Table on pinterest because I fell in love with their spice catalog! Isn’t it just so helpful! I want to print it out right now and tape it to my cabinet!
Last I wanted to share that I got an actual compliment on dinner from my hubby tonight when I served him this….he is very picky so if you have a picky eater try this meal you can find it here.
Got any tips to share? I’d love to hear them! Anything to help make Mothering easier.
