Don’t you wish every once in a while you could have a do over?
Well, if I was going to get through the rest of the day, I needed to have a do over with my 5 year old. He was a bit off… ok very off and everything was a production. He’s old enough to understand that he’s just not acting himself and needed a “DO OVER”. I brought him up to his room and told him to climb into bed, even though he looked at me as if I was crazy. I then explained to him that we are doing a “DO OVER”. I told him he’s getting in bed, I’m going to pull the covers over his head and I want him to yell “DO OVER”. And so he did… and laughed at the same time. I told him that sometimes we wake up on the wrong side of the bed and just need to start the day over again. After the “DO OVER”, I told him that it’s his choice how he handles the rest of the day and to try to be happy, fair and nice. I loved to concept and it worked, but needed to redo the “DO OVER” a few times throughout the day. Because sometimes…. You just have one of those days 2gether.
