Last night I went to CPI training, otherwise known as Nonviolent crisis intervention. The class was very informative and teaches us all kinds of awesome things that all parents need to know. They talk about the way we talk to children, the tone of our voice and the choice of words we use. I have to say that I learned a lot of usual information and will be using some of this on my own children.
I am so excited to be able to say that all of my training is finished and now all I have left to do before getting my license is finish the two home studies. I have no idea when she is going to come out for the second and third home study though. I asked one of the couples last night who had their first home study done on Thursday, if she had mentioned when she is going to come out again and they said that she had just told them that she would be in touch.
I have to say the one thing that annoys me is that I was the first one in the class to turn in all of my paper work and there are still people who are not finished turning in their paperwork and they are getting home studies done. The couple on Thursday don't have some paper work in and they are still able to proceed. I busted my tail getting everything done in the first week and I thought by doing that, I would be able to finish faster.....I was wrong :/ Sorry, I don't mean to whine on here....just frustrating to know that rushing and busting my tail the first week....it didn't get me anywhere.
Anyway...I am now free to take care of my own boys and get caught up on my school work and spend some time with these little monsters of mine :) My six year old told me today how happy he is that I am done with my training because now I can be home with him at night and play games with him. So on that note....I am going to play the board game LIFE.
Have a great Tuesday!
