Bri and I are in a stand off. I told her to pick up her room and she decided to argue with me and talk over me. That is a down side to letting her go to school and pick up other kids bad behaviors. So she is grounded from Tv, DVDs, 'tendo, and everything else until it is picked up. She spent the afternoon and evening in her room last night. I went in this morning and it was worse, so she will come home from school and go to her room again. It is a pure power play. It won't work. She is also trying to get Daddy to tell her it is ok to watch a movie. So she is trying him too. It won't work. We are standing together. Oh the joys of a five year old. Pray for me.
It is very hard to be living under someone else's roof. So I am struggling at this time and would be grateful for prayers from everyone. I feel that I am in a losing battle. Plus the strain is causing strife with my hubby. We rarely argue. But have been as of late. Bri has been acting up. So I am very stressed. My family and friends are 1300 miles away. I have a wonderful church, but have not been getting there due to other influences.
I have to stop here as I am tearing up. Have a wonderful day.
