My journey as a stay at home mom....gardening, sewing, knitting and anything else I feel like trying.

A place to sit and ponder....
With the terrible two has come a large use of the time out chair. We were using a table chair, but that sends a bit of a mixed message when you sit down to eat dinner. So IKEA also provided me a cheap chair. I decided to decorate it!
I also decided to call it the family's time out spot, because amazingly the older L has been going to time out lately too. Plus, I wanted the ability to sit there myself when I need a moment to pause before reacting, or when I just need a break.
Love, hope and patience are what we hope will grow as we sit.
I made it very colorful. It is a punishment in a way, but I want them to think of it more as a place to think and calm down, not sit and scream because they don't want to be there.
And so, I put, where I sit and ponder how my words and actions effect the ones I love, and those who love me, most. So far they like it and it is being used....frequently.
