So my new trick for not letting the girls drive me crazy (Ha!) is to put on my Grandparent Lenses. Here is how it works - the usually annoying scenario is to the left and the response with Grandparent Lenses follows...
- Getting splashed while giving the girls a bath - "What's a little water?"
- Chunks of food splattering everywhere because they have to stir - "Cute pudgy hands holding a spoon"
- Standing for 1 minute and 48 seconds while Carissa has to climb into car seat by herself - "Wow, look how independent she is getting"
- Waiting forever while Audrey fills her "purse" to bring to the store - "How nice it is to spend time alone with her".
See how great this technique is? Now, I have the opportunity to reap the reward before the Grandkids come! (They don't teach this stuff anywhere - good thing you have me)
