My mind feels crowded. Mr. Sexy has begun some major behavior modifications for Marie. I’m part of that process, too. I’m grateful that I haven’t had too much thought into the making of the plan. I am just following directions and doing what I’m told. The best I can at least.
Today is Day One.
And it’s already been taxing. I have a huge list of behaviors I get to ignore. Some of the biggest ones are Marie’s constant popping of her wrist and toys and how much she plays with her mouth and face. I get to put a tally mark on the white board each time I ignore the behavior and each tally mark is one point. You know what that means right? Points mean rewards! Mr. Sexy has a reward system for me and I have no idea what it is.
It’s still hard though.
Marie has a reward system too although she doesn’t know it yet. Mr. Sexy will have to explain it to her when he comes home tonight. I don’t understand his chart he made for her. lol But basically, Marie has two behaviors that she is working to overcome. The BIG one is bed wetting. The not-so-big one is licking her lips.
OMG. I just realized I don’t have to be ignoring her licking lips fettish! Mr. Sexy will laugh hard when he reads this.
Anyways, she has a goal for how long she goes without doing those behaviors. The licking lips behavior probably sounds weird and silly. However she is CONSTANTLY doing what I call “weird things” with her mouth which causes very dry lips and dry skin around her lips. I moisturize and chapstick her which helps.
Oh yeah. I also get to give Marie stickers throughout the day if she does anything remotely positive and good. She is working on her school and says, “There is a problem.” So I say, “Go get a sticker.” This makes me laugh. She gets a sticker for having a problem? Haha No. She gets a sticker because she actually told me there is a problem! That is a major positive for her.
I have over gone my 5 minutes. But as you can see, my mind is very crowded. Mr. Sexy has already given me “permission” to make myself a margarita. Not that I need his “permission” in the first place.
Happy Friday! I’m looking forward to my weekend!
