        Yea, you should have seen the look on her face when she realized for the first time that she was going to read the letter to the class. I made her write the letter first before we told her that piece of info. :)

        It's hard with teens because they become immune to the same old discipline (grounding, etc...). So we started trying to model natural consequences mixed with creative discipline.
        Natural consequences: If her grades are low, she has to present a plan to us on how she is going to increase them, as well as defining steps that can be measured to accomplish the overall goal. etc...
        Creative discipline: If she disrespects a teacher, which elevates her 'status' at school- then the discipline is going to bump her 'coolness' down a notch to her peers.

            okay I have missed a lot on this thread today...will have to catch up but I have to get this out!

            Dear Hubby,
            A postive at home test means I am pregnant, waiting to find out the same result from a blood test is only delaying the inevitable-you are going to be a dad, and while I know you will be happy about it once it really sinks in, but in the mean time being crabby with me does not help my own emotional craziness.

            Dear lab corp lady,
            I really meant it when I said I have rolling veins, once a needle gets near them, they don't want to give their blood away. Why didn't you just listen to me and take the blood out of my hand like I said in the first place...now I have a bruise and my arm really hurts.
            Also I am really sorry for crying while getting my blood drawn, it hurt when you were digging around trying to find my vein and I am a little emotional right now.

            Dear Mom,
            answer your phone!!! I want to tell you that you're going to be a grandma!!!!
            Christine + Will (married 7/20/07) + Ainsleigh (born 6/25/08) + Nolan (born 11/9/10) + Delaney (born 12/31/13) = One Very Happy Family!

                Dear self,

                Why oh why do you wait until you are doing the pee-pee dance before you stop working and get up to use the bathroom! You should know better, you are 28 damn years old, you DO NOT want to have an accident.

                Thanks,
                Your bladder

                I missed a lot but before I go back and read I need to yell a little.

                dear travel agent,
                WHEN I TOLD YOU I WOULD HAVE 40 GUESTS TRAVELING ON MONDAY WHY, WHY, WHY DID YOU BOOK ME ON A FLIGHT WITH ONLY 8 SEATS AVAILABLE WHEN THE FLIGHT THAT LEAVES AN HOUR LATER HAS 70!!!!!!!!! Now, I must cancel my (and 8 other guests) trips and redo them! UGH, i'm SOOOO mad. And I will NOT be paying for this.

                  Why is it that you feel you need to 'fix' everything? I know you're only trying to help, but when I'm feeling down about not losing weight, don't tell me I should cut out the salad dressing! The 35 friggen' calories aren't making me not lose weight! And going to the gym twice a day doesn't really work for me. I work 10 hours in a busy emergency department - I am physically exhausted when I get home. I cannot even imagine going before work and then again after! You go to work for like 4 hours a day (at most!) and then sometimes do some work at home. I'm working really hard to lose weight - why do you have to make me feel like I'm not doing everything I should? Can't you just say something like "That sucks... next week will be better... you're doing great" ?
                  I know how you feel. My FI does the same thing to me. then when I try to "fix" something for him he gets defensive. he certainly doesn't listen to my suggestions...even though the things i suggest are the same things he is telling me i should do.
