the great expectation

why is it that i expect more out of my children than i expect of myself? if i have the expectation of A behavior 80-85% of the time, shouldn't i also be mimicing or exceeding those expectations? boy, i have some work to do. i am going to have to start with going to bed at a deceit hour so i am at least somewhat pleasant before 9. yes, i am still working on this goal! i am getting up and functioning. it is the pleasant part i have to get a grip on. i am so thankful my heavenly father is much more understanding than me.
Proverbs 1:2-7
To know wisdom and instruction,
To perceive the words of understanding,
To receive the instruction of wisdom,
Justice, judgment, and equity;
To give prudence to the simple,
To the young man knowledge and discretion—
A wise man will hear and increase learning,
And a man of understanding will attain wise counsel,
To understand a proverb and an enigma,
The words of the wise and their riddles.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge,
But fools despise wisdom and instruction.
