I am a Hawai'i girl. 28 year old housewife, stay at home mom, and full time student. Hubster's in the air force.
My life is hectic, stressful, and yet so boring at times.
This is my blog about the fun and not so fun times as a mommy and wifey.
I know this is not motherhood-related, but I just thought I’d share anyways. I’m not sure if you read my recent post on wordpress: http://kianafromhawaii.wordpress.com/2013/05/23/goodbye-negativity/
Basically, I’m done, and saying goodbye to negativity in my life. I finally had a talk with my husband and told him how I felt and how I wanted to change how I lived my life. I want to be happier. I want to stop hating on people. I want to stop being mean to people, and start living positive. I told him how I’m not liking how he’s always mad at someone, or how he’s always mad at strangers. Long story short, he heard me, and he told me he’s sorry and that he’ll try his best. I admit, he did get a lot better from when I first met him.
I don’t know what came over me. I don’t know what came of this new life change, but I’m ready for this change. Here’s to the new us!
Everything has been improving.
My daughter is still waking up in the middle of the night to come cuddle with me in bed, but we’re still working on it. I am not giving up, because I know if I give in, I’m only making myself start over again.
A bunch of posts back, I mentioned how my daughter was having a hard time with friends. Things are so much better now. Now, we have only the one kid who is also 4 years old, come over to play. So it’s been nice not having all the kids here plotting against her.
I just started recently hanging out with a new group of friends. They are mostly the wives of the guys who are in the same clothing business as my husband. Anyways, my daughter has been really getting a long with those group of kids too. I never had one incident with them yet, and nobody is mean to her, so I’m loving it. We often have playdates, so it’s nice that my daughter has kids to play with.
Now, the thing that we need to work on is my daughter’s listening skills. Gosh, I swear she’s only deaf when I’m trying to talk to her. I’m finally trying to finish “ScreamFree Parenting” on my kindle. It’s actually good information. Hopefully it will actually help me become a ScreamFree parent.

I just turned in my last final exam for spring semester! I am registered for summer classes, but I do have a mini break in between, so now it’s time to celebrate! I’m going to take advantage of this break and make every beautiful day count. I’m going to spend so much time with my daughter and I can’t wait for all the fun we’re going to have.
I have my mama-san coming over tomorrow. She doesn’t like to be bothered when she cleans the house, so I’m going to take her to the park if it’s a nice day, or to Mihama play park if it’s raining. I can’t wait!

My daughter was a brat all day long. She never listened to me, and I had to repeatedly say what I needed to say. My day consisted of me saying:
No Kai, Kaiolohia!!!, I said NO!, Stop, I said STOP!!
Then when I sat her down to have a talk with her, she had a smirk on her face!! Oh, that made me even more mad. I don’t even know what has gotten into her lately. Yes, she has her bratty moments, she’s not perfect. But lately, it seems like it’s uncontrollable and has gotten out of hand. Today at lunch she put her feet on top of the table. When I took them off, she put them right back up again. She did it several times. Oh my, I was pissed. I had to talk to her quietly so everybody else in the restaurant couldn’t hear.
All that misbehaving has made me exhausted.
