Today I am issuing a Mulligan to myself and my children.

We did not start on a good note this morning. After an hour of Kira having tantrums and the struggle of the wills - which I did win, by the way - I decided that it was a good idea to rewind and start over.

**A mulligan, in a game, happens when a player gets a second chance to perform a certain move or action. The practice is also sometimes referred to as a "do over."**

So today is officially Mulligan Day at my house.

I hope your fresh start works out better then your first start :o)

Yes, Toni, the Mulligan allowed to me to adjust my mindset so that the day would be better instead of going down hill.

We've actually had a pretty good day with no more tantrums.

I'm still not sure what it is with Kira and her constantly begging me to do things for her - other than she wants the attention. The battle of the wills was enough to show her that I was still in charge, I suppose. But it's always hard to take that route when it's often easier in the short term to just do whatever it is that needs done.

Happy Mulligan Day!

Mulligans are SO important in parenting. It's not always easy to put frustration and anger aside and say, "Do Over!"
