I'm sure we can all complete the phrase "Do as I say, not as I do". I always hated that saying. Should we not be modelling behaviour we want others (i.e. our children) to copy? I always thought the lesson should be "you are permitted to copy what I do"...of course then I had children and, although I really try, sometimes I want them to forget when I start to rant or lose my cool.
Forward to today. I have an exam next week (first step to a new job), and have squirreled myself away in my office trying to prep for it. My daughter even said to me that "preparation is the key to getting a good result" - something I've been trying to teach her this year when she complains she does not want to study for a test cause she knows it all. I was all ready to practice what I have been preaching.
So what am I doing when I should be preparing - I'm writing a blog post - after I visited Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Oof...thankfully my girls are downstairs and cannot witness my procrastination. They can't see that I am not following my own advice. And I can stay the sage mamma for a little while longer.
Off to get back to prepping...after I go make a tea :-)
