Like all parents, our lives are filled to the brim with baseball, coaching, homework, playdates, school functions, board meetings, job searching and part-time gigs, tax deadlines, hobbies, guests, making friends, keeping up the house, and, oh yeah, raising a decent family of boys. Life was starting to feel insane and now seemed as good a time as any to focus on fixing the issues that are causing us to be psycho parents and our boys devilish little minions.
So this weekend we played baseball:
We’ve stopped the bleeding and I think we have control back? At least the boys believe we are back in charge and that’s all that matters! Their response has been very positive. Each boy likes knowing exactly what he is responsible for and what his consequences will be if he makes a bad choice. Easy for us too. Fingers crossed that we have officially stepped off the crazy train!
