For whatever reasons, I have not felt like blogging lately, and have a need now to catch up on a few things.
Jarrett, at http://affinityrev.wordpress.com/ has a wonderful Team Parenting series that I’ve been following. Here are the latest.
‘Give each other a day off’ I’ve already have mentioned this, but Mike and I will do this. It may not be a entire day, but a few hours, or an evening. It’s important that we have time to ourselves, to benefit us and our kids. It gives us a break, allowing to get away from the hub-bub (is that a word) and stress that a day can bring.
‘Hold each other accountable (be positive)’ I think the hard part of this is the be positive part. On both ends. I know that either party can become defensive and take a look or a tone of voice the wrong way, and all heck breaks out, and the blame game (with finger points and all) starts. I think both parties need to learn and understand accountability and constructive criticism (myself included).
