Monday's Musings: Balancing the Sass

It is this constant conversation we have...I love your sass, but not your freshness.  She has such a funny sense of humor.  She loves the spotlight.  She is testing my patience.
I just want her to say yes more often.  I want her to agree every now and then.  I would like her to listen without argument or negotiation. 
I adore this kid.  I wonder if sometimes our interactions have gone negative.  We argue and it is just how we communicate sometimes.  But I need to show her a different way.  I need to find a different way.
I am her greatest role model.  In an age where we worry about influences like Miley Cyrus, I realize that my daughter looks to me first.  I am setting the example.

It scares me because she sees me in all lights.  The good and the bad.  I think maybe I just need to keep communication open and teach her about forgiveness and acceptable.

I also need to keep teaching her about boundaries.  Letting her know what is acceptable and what we won't tolerate.

I just hope she is watching and listening and learning.  I will do all that I can to lead her in the right direction, even if that means I do some changing myself.
