Better, Tired, and motivated

I am doing better, working hard on myself and focusing on the positive and staying centered on what really matters most in my life. I am exhausted. We had our yearly vacation in FL with the family from NY and MD, is that the abbreviation for Maryland? It was nice to get away, next year I think I am opting to go sans child. Sydney was challenging? I think that would be a nice way to put it, three is ummm well hell. I hate three. I despise three, I would take two all over again to not have three. I feel lost of what to do with three. She is into doing what she wants to hurt you when you are putting her into time out. Yeah sounds fun, like scratching or hitting you with her head or kicking, I just love it, I just love looking like the ass with the child that runs the show. I don't know what to do, I stand my ground but inside but what the hell. Spanking does not seem to work because all I am doing is showing her that her hurting me makes me hurt her back. And then this noise she makes when you tell her something she does not want to hear she does this "ehh" sound and it just grates on my nerves, so we do the soap in the mouth, and that is not even working now. I am at a loss. I am going to have to get a book and figure this one out. ANY suggestion would be appreciated, I thought I would be good at this kid thing....ugh! I don't and won't have this bratty kid if that is the case we will stay locked in our home because I will not take her ass out into public and allow people to witness this behavior.

I took my first ever trip to Las Vegas last week and returned on Monday. It was for my For Your Pleasure business. It was fantastic. I had a blast. Vegas was fantastic, of course I didn't get to see everything I wanted to I knew I wouldn't but I did get to see a nice portion. I learned a lot and met some fantastic people. Bonded with the group of women from my area, cannot wait to apply what I learned into my business and next year Scott is going with me!! One thing I learned about Vegas, you never know what time it is, I lost total track of time. I don't know if it was because I had flown in from FL on Wednesday night and then Thursday afternoon I flew to Vegas. Our meetings started that night at 6 PM and we did not stop until Sunday at midnight. I am still trying to recover. 2-3 hours of sleep were about average because you are in VEGAS!!! Nobody sleeps in Vegas, that is what work is for!

The SUPER BONUS JACKPOT I hit before I even got on the plane to go to Vegas we that Kim an her family came in the day we came back from vacation and I got about 2 hours to spend with her before I flew out again. It was great. Just a few hours her and I chatting, and getting to see one another for a bit. She got to go with me to take Syd to school, Syd played shy, before we got there Syd talked all about her and then clammed right up. Kids gotta love them.

OK, kids at 3 are a nightmare. You are not doing anything wrong, the problem is that your child is behaving like a typical 3 year old. Everyone talks about the terrible two's, they just haven't hit three yet. The age at which most parents would gladly sell their children to the first band of traveling gypsies willing to take them. Just stand your ground, be consistent, drink A LOT and know that the age of 4 is the greatest age on the face of the earth, you just have to make it through this year! Much love to you guys!

I could kiss you! Today I was talking to one of the other Mom's at Syd's school and she was telling me the same thing. I made the same comment about drinking lots and lots between now and her having her own kids. I think I cannot wait for Syd to have her own 3 yr old so I can go into the closet and laugh at her struggles, is that bad?

Good to hear our daughter isn't the Princess of Darkness she has portrayed lately. We need to live life by the noble words of Jimmy Buffet...

can you guess which ones?

Hint: They're on my boxers.


It's a battle of wills with her and she WILL lose.

I can't wait for Vegas next year. We will be needing our own room. Unless... uh, never mind.
