Good Behaviour

Technically it's 25 minutes into tomorrow, but I've already lost the challenge so what the hey. Besides, I've not been to bed yet, so it's still in a sense yesterday.

I'm as confused as you are. It's okay.

I wanted to make sure I got this in today though. Today, I was thankful for Lolly's good behaviour.

Lolly is wild at heart, and while I love that about her, I also want to wring her neck sometimes. I realised today that I focus a lot on her bad days and don't make a big enough deal of her good days.

Today was a good day.

Lolly was sweet, pleasant, helpful and fun, while still being her wild little self. I really enjoyed spending time with her today, and I was thankful for the lovely afternoon with no shouting, no arguing and no needing to discipline. She wanted to help me clean and make lunch, and didn't complain when we had to go to the shop or leave the museum. She was kind to Jaguar and playful and well-mannered. It was a very good day with her.

I'm thankful for good days with Lolly like today. I am going to try to focus more on them than on her wilder days, and maybe it'll do us both a world of good!
