Blog a book along: parenting....

I finally was able to read the intro yesterday. My thoughts on it are I am all for eradicating the self-defeating attitudes. I know I have a few and really do try to get rid of them. The neurotic dividends is definitely something I willing to not have anymore. What I really liked about the intro was that he included some things other than what he thought. His mom's poem to him is something I have often said to myself. That we as parents are there to guide them and then be willing to step aside and them try and fail if need be. But to be there when they need to understand and support them. I am also not wanting to be a friend to my kids they need someone to guide them and support them not just be liked by them. I am looking forward to more of this book.

It is a good day!!

The kids are back in school and there might be a little rain. So it is all good. Busy most of the weekend with church and family. It was a nice relaxing weekend. Now I just have to clean up from that weekend. I have been doing some reading trashy and informative. I have been reading up on spinning so it is interesting and helping me understand the what all the new terms mean. I am going to have to seek out the guild and a person near me that know spins. It is wonderful to learn something new.

I got a few rows of knitting in but haven't done anything with my scrapping. I have to fit in a new to me bookshelf. IT will be fun to do some spring cleaning.

Have a wonderful spring and enjoy the butterflies.

It is hard to believe it has been two weeks. Time is flying by again. I haven't done Rhonna's challenge very well. I got up to about day 14 and time just got away from me again. I will have to do on my own again. Thanks to everyone who commented on my blog. I enjoyed everyone's journals. I will stop again from time to time on some of them.

Now, I am going to start bloggin a book on parenting. I have 3 kids who sometimes I think get the better of me. I want so many things for them that I don't know where to begin sometimes. We will be reading and commenting on this book. What do you really want for your children? by Wayne Dyer. It sounds like an interesting book. I am looking forward to reading it and thinking about what it says. Check it out...the button on the right.

I better get going I have some errands I need to do today.
