House sitting

I am off house sitting for a few weeks. Be back soon.

(The garden we get to eat from while we house sit, yeah!)

I have a 6 year old kicker

Since my daughter has gone back to school she has started kicking people and objects when she gets mad. The first time it happened she was grounded and let known that it is totally unacceptable. Then she did it again, so as a conciquence I took away all her favorite shoes. I told her if she did it again I would take away all her shoes. After every incident she crys and says how mad she is at herself.

This whole thing is a total shocker to me, and I have learned from it that other children do it to her. Which that right there is a hard lesson, because she gets in trouble for doing what she has learned from others, but she can't punish them for doing it to her.

So today she did it again. Do I go out thrifting and find the most horrible shoes ever and tell her that's all she has and take away the rest? Do I make her go barefoot for a day? Do I keep grounding her? How do I stop this?

My tomato tree

I have a 7 foot tall cherry tomato tree. It has not produced many tomatoes though. It just keeps growing up. What do I do?
