Life Update!

So, mid-Feb is here! Is that a good thing? I am hoping so! Been having a so-so month with family...having issues with Katie and trying very hard to grasp what I am suppose to do. She is spoiled, I know this. She needs discipline, I know this. I try! She is so much like Zach was it is scary. I have so afraid to have another 11 years like the past 10 have been with him. I do try and punish her, I have taken to busting her butt and she does nothing but yell at me. I take things, she doesn't care. I have grounded her to the house with no playing with friends and it ends up as an "oh well" thing as well. Where do I go from here? Gosh this question is just a repeat of what I did when Zach was her age!

She is stealing things from friends. Yes, better than a store, but we are talking cash, change, lipstick from friends, friends parents, me, and a teacher at school. When we go to my mom's she gets into everything she is not suppose to and takes all my step-dad's change to use in the gumball machine and candy machine. Her lying about it makes it worse and she doesn't seem to care when she gets in trouble or caught. She has written all over her dresser in marker (the one I sanded a repainted in July), all over her closet doors, her wall....this is something a 2 year old does, not a 7 year old! I am at the end of my rope here and really not in the mood to hear how much discipline she needs!

On another note...Jordan is mouthy and lazy; Zach is still mouthy and lazy but not as lazy as Jordan; the dog still craps in the house and pees in the house if he is allowed upstairs or left out of his kennel downstairs for any amount of time; and I am still procrastinating over house cleaning and doing my real estate classes that have to be completed in a month!
