Happy Valentine's Day! I hope everyone had a nice day with their loved ones. I know we did. And since it is also a day of sweets and candy, I of course let my child have a few more sugary items today. I caved in and did not stick to my 'be consistent' in limit settings that I try to do every day. It kind of went like this:
Me: "Okay, you can split a cupcake with mommy"
Me: "I know you want another cupcake, but you just had one."
Tears, meltdown, throws self on floor
Me: "Okay, we can have another one, but just today because it's Valentine's day"
I gave in, what can I say? It is hard, even on non-holidays to always stick to your guns, especially in public. The public pleas are going to take a lot of practice, in being able to say no and not let it bother you that people are staring, and a lot of having to just leave a store if needed.
Oh well, as I have said before, I may have an LPC after my name but that doesn't mean I don't make mistakes either :)
