Yes, I survived 7 days of the 20-10-10 challenge. Surprisingly my hardest challenge was the 10 hugs a day and I didn’t really meet that all the time. I have kids who hug me, not the stiff-armed type, but the often insincere kind. Although it can be real and they initiate it most of the time. That’s my fault and something I need to work on. The cuddle part got easier through the week and their activity time was usually okay. I did play more Gamecube than I hope to for while. Played a lot of scrabble and took a few walks. Not too bad. But I realized, as a homeschool mom, I spend a LOT of time with them throughout the day. Not necessarily their chosen activity per se, but cooking one on one or having conversations, doing a chore together. We spend a lot of time together but I have to speak their love language. And then pray it doesn’t scare them off. The week hasn’t been too much worse for having done this challenge, but M is definitely struggling with deep heart issues. Separating him and S takes away his outlet for inappropriate feelings and he’s bottled up ready to explode. I told him he could tell our therapist on Friday how terrible his mom is for sending him outside. Hurry, call social services. I sent him outside to run off some energy.

All in all I’m glad I took up this attachment challenge. I see how far we still have to go and how much I need to work on my own stuff. Because you know they’re going to bring it out in ‘ya!

    awesome! I’m just now pouring over everyone’s challenge results. SO fun to hear how everyone’s week went. Also so exciting to have all of us participate in the same thing even though we’ve never met each other. many times it was comforting just knowing that moms all over were muddling through the same mayhem we were.

    Congratulations on finishing the AC! I’m sorry it didn’t turn out exactly like you wanted it to. I didn’t even try it. So that makes you a better mom than me!
