How Do You Keep Your Cool?

Sophia and I did not have a good day. Her first term exams start on Monday and there are still a lesson or two we are not done yet. She went swimming early today at 12 noon (as opposed to 6pm, her usual). And after a shower and late lunch, she did everything she could to get away from school. I hate to repeat myself and tested my patience again.

I told her maybe like ten times before I blew up. She acted childish, and well… I acted like any normal (I think) adult would. I was angry and frustrated and so I locked myself in the bedroom and napped.

It was not until later that night that we made up. She felt bad, and I felt bad. At the end of the day, I wasted so much time being petty. I forgot punishment is not discipline. Now we have to work even harder tomorrow. It is eleven and she just fell asleep, so good luck to us!

I am on it!
