Princess Bookworm has had quite the attitude lately. Try as I might, I couldn't get her to shake it.
Then my husband, The Novelist, suggested I take her on my errands yesterday. That's when I realized that it HAD been awhile since we did anything. Just her and I. So I quickly agreed.
Princess Bookworm was excited. We were busy (laundrymat, library, post office, gas for the vehicle, grocery shopping, and one other stop at a different store), but we had fun. When it was all said and done, we were gone for 3 hours. As we were about to go back to the laundrymat to get our clean, dry laundry, she mentioned she was ready to get back home because she missed her daddy.
And she was an angel the rest of the day ... and all of today so far.
Then it hit me big time. When *I* have a poor attitude, getting alone with my Lord and Savior for a little while ... just Him and me ... really helps.
So it would make sense that some alone time with her Mommy (or Daddy) would help big time as well.
