We are all trying to be better people around here for Lent this year. I'm trying to be a better mom, which means less yelling, which means more positive reinforcement, which leads to the jelly bean jar. Every time the girls do something especially nice for us or each other, they may put a jelly bean in the jar. We will all share the jelly beans on Easter! This is a picture of the first jelly bean placed in the jar today- Casey couldn't find her lamby for naptime, and Anna graciously offered to let her sleep with her beloved elephant. (unprompted) I will repost a picture of the jar near Easter- here's hoping for a full jar!
