Two Steps Forward, One Back

After several pretty good nights/mornings, Daughter wet the bed last night and has been slow getting up this morning. I allowed her to watch a TV show we recorded on Monday last night. She was so eager to get to the show that she didnt do her chores well. I was outside mowing, so wasn't in here to check up on her until after she turned on the TV. She did not respond well when I told her that there shouldn't be clumps of cat hair on carpet she had just vacuumed. She did come and redo it, but was quite dramatic, announcing she'd just leave. Fortunately, she didn't, and I did let her return to her show.

Her frustration is coming out this morning. She won't have time for a full breakfast. Hopefully she'll turn it around this morning and we'll have a better evening. When she does well, she panics and does something to sabotage herself. My goal is to maximize the good times and minimize the time she's back into this frustrating state.
