I am now on Twitter...follow me @ WhatNowJoAnn!!!
Time for an admission...
I have no idea what I am doing when it comes to any of this technology stuff. I am fumbling my way through this blog, Facebook, and now Twitter. So please, please hang in there I promise to figure out at least 1 new thing per day (any more than 1 and my head may explode).
As long as we are talking about having no idea what I'm doing...lets talk parenting. This is where I fumble the most. My kids are my world, however, I really wish that they came with a "play book". Wouldn't that be great!!! I would then know exactly how to react to every situation that came hurling my way. Wow then I might even get in the running for Mom of the Year (yeah right!!!).
As it stands now I have a 16 year old who likes to think she is the adult in this relationship and a 4 year old (going on 16) who is following right in her sisters footsteps. Lord Help Me!!!
They really are great kids (at least I think so), but they are demanding as all get out. Somehow they always want 3 meals per day, plus snacks, clean clothes, and the most annoying of all they seem to think they are the center of the universe. Wow I really got the short end of the stick on this, I guess that's what I get for creating Monsters.
But when my Mom payments come in the form of "I Love You Mom", or they kiss me goodnight, or they remember to say "Thank You" (mostly to others). I really feel like I am doing an okay job and they are turning into great people.
Besides, who wants a stupid trophy that says Mom of the Year....it would just be one more thing for me to dust!!!
