remembering the good moments - june 20, 2009

When my school was introduced to the PBS (Positive Behavior Supports) System our mentor showed us a picture of her children that sits on her desk at work. Her children are neatly dressed for an Easter celebration, they both have smiles on their faces, and look rather charming. Our mentor told us she keeps that picture on her desk to remember the good moments... not the "I am going to pull my hair out" moments.
The picture above is a good moment.
The last couple of days have been challenging.
Kate has always been a good baby. We could take her anywhere and she would be happy to go along for the ride. Half the time she would hardly make a peep. We would have to coax her to smile or say hello to a kind stranger.
Boy oh boy has that changed this week.
She has had a fit EVERYWHERE we have taken her since Tuesday. She has had a fit at a restaurant (or two), at the library, at the outdoor mall. And she has had countless fits at home.
I start to wonder is she entering the terrible twos? Is something bothering her? Is she sick? Could it be her teeth?
What is going on?!? What am I doing wrong?!? How can I stop this?!?
I have not found any answers.
But I am remembering (and focusing on) the good moments!
And just in case I need one more picture...
