Today after I finished what I needed to do in the morning, I had totally planned on taking the boys to the beach to meet some friends there. Yeah! Love the beach! Now usually I am not very good at punishing my children by taking away something fun that we are going to do but today I just had to, even though I think that it is punishing me more than them! They went out to play a little one on one basketball and a huge fight broke out between them with hitting and mean words being thrown around! Whats with that?? They just would not stop and I had had it so therefore we cancelled our plans to go to the beach and they are going to help me finish what there is to do on my to-do list! There! That will teach them but boy am I bummed! I think in the end I was the one who was punished. I really needed a beach day today and it was one of the things I had on my to-do list! Oh well I think that I am going on Thursday now, with or without them! They will just have to deal with a very unhappy Mom today and hopefully that will get my point across!! Grrrr!
