Planning for the best....
I was given a pearl of wisdom today which I thought I would share.
Instead of planning for the worst case situation, plan for the best case.
I think I tend to plan for the worst case situation and so it becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. Goofy is going to whinge at me for food all day and that is going to be annoying and I will get my cranky pants on and so will she. Sure enough, that happens most afternoons.
Today I am going to plan for the best case scenario. Goofy wont ask for food from afternoon tea till dinner. I don't often think about afternoon tea so it ends up being a long drawn out process with me constantly plugging them with bits of food. So I am going to have a plate of afternoon tea ready for her when she gets home for preschool and explain that this is all the food there is till dinner. All with a smile on my face!!
Will see how it goes......
