I've discovered I use a phrase altogether too much

I'm kind of an anxious and easily stressed person. On the surface, I may look calm and collected, the inside is a different story. The older I get, the worse it gets. And that really stinks because I don't like being this way. I can get snippy and short when I don't really mean too. I don't know why. It just happens. Sorry family. Things (and to be more specific, almost everything) stresses me out even when I don't want them too. I must say it all the time because Avery has started saying stuff to me like:

"I can't get dressed right now. It stresses me out too much."

"Cleaning me room is stressing me out. I want you to do it for me."

"I'm stressed about going to school."

"I'm too stressed about dinner. I can't eat it."

"Peyton touching my toys is stressing me out."

And on and on. I usually laugh when she says stuff like this because it's said in her melodramatic fashion, but I suppose it's really not that funny. It's time I worked on my "stress" so that I quit rubbing it off on to my kids.

I have similar issues. I also have a bit of a swearing problem--not big, bad swear word. Just small, bad ones. O is picking them up now and I feel like a schmuck!!

Kids pick up so quickly on things don't they? Too bad we can't pick and choose what they pick up on.

Looks like they said what I was going to. Kids pick up on EVERYTHING. We have to be SO careful what we say around my nephew.

It sounds so funny and so like her but it really isn't. After you left friday we had to say another prayer on her hand and knee so it would start to feel better. Take five deep breaths

My niece once said, "Michael, what the hell are you doing?" She was 4, I think. Her dad said it right before that. Another reason I don't want to have children.

Tap with me Christa...I'm feeling overwhelmed. Hee hee....if you do it every hour on the hour we'll be doing it together. What fun we'll be having.....

I am so there with you SISTA! I need to find me an outlet to help with the stress and that wont stress me out! Possibly I need to ...relax and not let it stress me out.

When you try the tapping thing, tell me how it goes! It can be so humbling when our children mimic us.
