Today we tried some new tactics. Namely, a sticker chart for good behavior. How did it go? Well, like pretty much anything else goes with a 3-yr-old. It was CRAZY EXCITING for like a half hour, she was “using good listening” and “being kind to sister” and she even let me “brush hair with no whining” and then it just ceased to motivate her. Apparently we do not have stickers cool enough to warrant “stay[ing] in room during quiet time”.

But, we painted this morning. And that was fun.

Not entirely sold on the finger paint just yet.

She realized she looked like the “Wicked Witch of the ‘Est” and began cackling.

“Eh, heh heh heh”

Blah, blah, paint on walls/floor/pants/hair/my shirt/the carpet/edge of tub followed by a pre-lunch bath. You know the tune.
