Five Minute Friday – Dance

Linking up with Lisa-Jo over on her site today.

The word is dance. The deal is to write for five minutes, without using the Backspace key, without worrying about spelling or grammar; no do-overs, editing or over thinking. Then link back to Lisa-Jo and invite others to join in. Oh, and you must visit the person who linked up before you and comment on their post! This is about community and connecting people! Let’s jump in!

Five Minute Friday – Risk

It’s Friday…as I’m sure you already know. Weeks at this time of year are hard to abide when school is so close to being out and the days heat up like fire before noon. Friday can’t come fast enough. The kids want free time in the pool and the sunshine; no structure, no rules. They ache for the lazy days of summer. As do I.

Friday also brings with it a post opportunity. I don’t have to think of the topic. I just have to write and link up with Lisa -Jo Baker.

This week’s Five Minute Friday word from The Gypsy Mama (Lisa-Jo Baker) is Risk.

The deal is to write for five minutes, without using the Backspace key, without worrying about spelling or grammar, no do-overs, editing or over thinking. Then link back to The Gypsy Mama and invite others to join in. Oh, and you must visit the person who linked up before you and comment on their post! This is about community and connecting!

I’m linking up with The Gypsy Mama today, where we write for five minutes flat on Fridays.

“We finger paint with words. We try to remember what it was like to just write without worrying if it’s just right or not.” Continue reading

Another Update on my Nasty Voice

I’ve had plenty of reminders to check my tone. I have had plenty of opportunities to practice my count-to-5-first rule. (Rowdy 2 and 4 year olds are good for that 😉 ).

So now, about three weeks since my last post on my Nasty Voice, I’m seeing a marked improvement.

Yes, I’ve snapped on occasion. Yes, I’ve regretted my choice of words directed at the offending child. But each time, I have learned a little something new about myself and about my children. Find out what I’ve learned
