What makes you happy?

Lately, if I am being honest, it's not much. Which is why things have been pretty quiet on the blog front- i just didn't feel the need to pass on these yucky negative vibes.

This morning, I had battles about brushing teeth, getting shoes on and why exactly the yogurt snack from Friday was: 1) uneaten and 2) still left in his backpack with my 6 year old ie the boy who fights every single thing I say. Ugh.
Then I dropped him off at school, helped get my 1 & 2 year old dressed and teeth brushed before 10am (victory!) and we headed to Target.

Target makes me happy.
 So does successfully disciplining my two year old and his tantrums at Target by
a) staying calm {it is the key, people}
b) giving my crazy dude choices: {You may walk beside the cart with Mama or get in the cart. }
c) by giving him a timeout when he chose not to obey right then and there. {did you know there are corners e.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e?}

We had a successful shopping trip! Also known as,  I took a one and two year old to Target, purchased everything on my list, filled a prescription and made it through the checkout and out to the car with nary one single screaming episode. WAHOO!!

and that folks, makes me happy.
