what to do when your child follows directions

Pin It
juice in one hand
"breakfast snack" in the other
he gets up
he sits down
he is everywhere

"babe, please sit at your table
and eat your breakfast"
is answered with
            "okay, momma"
and that's just what he did
{after flipping the table upside down}
i did not question
i did not correct
i did nothing other than 
thank him for listening
                                   because that's what he did
even if it wasn't exactly what i had meant

Awesome! Sometimes we just need to say thank you and not make a huge song and dance over ever thing our kids do!
