Goals for this Week, January 11th

I thought I was going to have two perfect goal weeks in a row. But it wasn’t meant to be. I knew opening that bottle of 7up was going to be my downfall.

I knew I shouldn’t have open up the bottle of 7up this week. If I hadn’t, I would have drank enough water. But that darn pop just kept calling my name, every time I opened the refrigerator. I tried to resist, but I didn’t do too well. At least it is almost gone and so the temptation to drink it, will be gone soon too.

I was able to get to the rest of my goals for this week. Which I’m really happy about. I also learned something this week. I don’t encourage my kids enough, I don’t give praise enough and they really need it.

This week my son wasn’t working very hard at school. It was a difficult week and I knew we needed a change. I printed off some printables and dug out a few phonics/reading and math games. By the end of the week, my son was more focused and really doing much better.

He said to me on Friday, after doing really well with his spelling and reading, “Mom, are your proud of me?” That’s when it hit me like a ton of bricks. I’m not the best encourager.

I told him I was really proud of him and how he had done such a great job. I gave him a big hug and a high five. The joy on his face was wonderful.

So this week, I’m going to work on being more of an encourager to my kids. I will be giving them praise for the jobs they do well and encouraging when things don’t go that well. My little one reminded me, I need to do that more.

Here’s the things I was able to accomplished this past week,

  1. I think you are a wonderful encourager Shelly! I understand what you mean though…sometimes we get so focused on crossing something off our lists that we forget to stop and take the time to talk to our family.

    Hope you have a great week!
