1. Do not put bananas in grocery cart with Noelle at the beginning of the shopping. Unless I had planned on making banana bread. Which I never plan on doing since the middle is never quite done and the outside is always overdone.
4. Try to get super excited about all the merit badges Ike and I are going to earn. Uh, I mean he is going to earn. All by himself. Without any reminding or threatening or bribing. Just like with his homework. Super excited are we!
5. Start reading the dictionary to Noelle. So she can learn more words besides "No!" and "Mine!"
