Then Tuesday night rolled around and it was REALLY GOOD! We had tears from MK because she "thought" she was in trouble for getting a "Yellow Face" :-/ at school. She talks a lot and sometimes forgets to stop even when she's been asked to stop several times. It was short lived. We try to leave school at school.
Layla was in a delightful mood. They ate their dinner, cleaned their rooms, and MK read Junie B. Jones while Layla layed on her
The best part about Tuesday night was I was able to use a MARVELOUS Love and Logic (L&L) delayed consequence on her. Over the weekend we had 4 tantrums. Not including the Tuesday morning tantrum.
So 4 days, 5 tantrums = not good for Layla's social life!
She brought home and invite for a PARTY her friend is having on Saturday. I sat her down on the couch and we sort of did a "week in review" about how she's been feeling, acting, treating others, and how she ruined the last "party" she went to (MK's) by throwing a fit when she didn't get her way (it's not my party and I'll cry if I want to?!?).
After our conversation, I asked her... "Would you like to accept my NO for going to the party, or will you be choosing to throw a fit about it?" To my surprise... SHE ACCEPTED THE NO!!!! :)
Bedtime was a breeze. We were going to bed at 7:30, but due to the obvious need for more rest, we went back to ol' faithful 7:00 last night.
This morning they were both in good moods. MK's focus was off because her medicine hadn't hit her system yet. Overall though, it was a GREAT morning.
Fingers crossed for no post-therapy regression this afternoon!
