A Children’s Book About Whining by Joy Berry
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I remember reading the books in this series to my children when they were young. There were some books with great advice for the children and parents on how to handle difficult behavior.

I think I kept this one because I knew whining sometimes lasts into adulthood. The techniques in the book are great!

I would recommend this to anyone with a child who whines. Read aloud to the child. It will help you both.

A Children's Book About Whining

I Got My Bandaid. I’m Done!

I helped out as a check-in person at the vaccination clinic a few times. One time, I was paired with a nurse who liked to put the bandaid on the patient before she gave the shot. She peeled off half of the backing and put it on the patient’s arm to give herself a target and so she wouldn’t have to hunt for the injection site. Brilliant!

This worked beautifully until she got to one young man who was a little unclear on the concept. He was so excited to get his bandaid and announced “I got my Bandaid! I’m Done!” He hadn’t felt a thing. Well, that was because the nurse hadn’t given him the shot yet. He was a little disappointed that she insisted on giving him the shot anyhow. He wasn’t upset, at least. The rest of us got a giggle out of his announcement, anyhow.

Catching Up

The reading for school slowed my regular reading down. Luckily, I received a free children’s book and it got me started on a rabbit’s hole of children’s book that were related. I am now only 7 books behind on my goal. 50 books completed this year. I still have a few to review. Several are scheduled for future postings, so you’ll be seeing them pop up soon.

I have several books that are not children’s books with good chunks started. I have deadlines for several of them, but I don’t think I’ll meet the deadlines. I will, however, be able to finish them at some point soon.

I am a tad ahead on my school assignments, so at least I am not completely behind. I don’t think this semester will have a 4.0 GPA attached, but passing is the goal, not straight A’s. Aim for excellence, not perfection!

Out in the Open again

I am still training for my 1.5 mile swim in early October. Until this week, all of my training has been in the pool.

I grabbed a friend and we set off to get me back into the open water. I had a little trouble with the swim watch, but my friend had hers going. We actually did .66 miles. It was a slow pace, but we were out there!

I plan on getting out there again soon.

Losing the car

I had an unexpected day off, so I decided to be productive about it. Molly and I had a long list to do.

We started by taking her mom to work in her mom’s car. Molly alerted us by whining whenever a dog was visible. Then I had to go to the ATM. She cried a little when I got out, but stopped soon.

I came back and there was a car that looked like mine near my daughter’s. I knew I didn’t have my car, so I walked past the little red one to a Toyota SUV. My daughter doesn’t have a Toyota. I couldn’t find her car, so I honked the door lock a few times. Couldn’t find it. Then I see miss Molly looking at me from four cars away wondering what the heck I was doing and why I didn’t get in the car.

It’s one thing to do stupid things like that, but another to have a witness. At least Molly won’t tell on me.

15 Books Behind

I have been reading. Really, I have. I haven’t been finishing much, and when I do finish, I haven’t written reviews. I spent time this week, between classes, catching up a bit.

In theory, since June 30 is roughly the middle of the year, I should have had 55 books completed by then. I think I had 38 done at that point. I am catching up, and I am sure I will fall further behind once school starts up hard again in the Fall. I think I will be close. Only time will tell.
