In Shelby’s world, things happen in a very specific way. She is very much a creature of habit and likes her routine. She gets this from me.
Yesterday afternoon Shelby had a bit of a melt down. She didn’t want to do her homework and had one heck of a tantrum. Eventually Miss Jamie had to send Shelby to time-out, where she sat for longer than she normally does (it took her quite some time to calm down).
After Jamie left, Daddy had a little talk with Shelby. They discussed her behavior, what’s appropriate and what is expected of her. When all was said and done, they came up with a new schedule for her. If she knows her schedule and we stick with it … she is very much able to behave and does so happily.
Daddy and Shelby filmed some videos with Shelby talking about what her morning and afternoon routines would now include.
I have to share these videos with you. Shelby is just so stinkin’ cute. It’s hard to stay mad at her when she is such a goof ball.February 23, 2010
