|Princess trying to look happy about the 100º weather, Birdie-- not trying|
As much as it pains me to do it, I intentionally sabotage our day on occasion (not much, but some) in order for the girls to "practice" dealing with things not going their way. I may rearrange the events on our Summer Schedule, for instance, and do Wednesday's activity on Monday-- "accidentally". I may get to the library a few minutes before it opens so that we have to wait to get in. *gasp* I may offer mac & cheese for lunch, only to "discover" we don't have any in the pantry. I may invade their ever-sacred personal space without asking, or "accidentally bump into" one of them, so that they have to practice dealing with unauthorized contact appropriately.
