Now What?

It's 11:40 a.m. and in the 4 hours we've been up we have:
  • Cleaned the bathrooms
  • Cleaned the kitchen sink
  • Cleaned the freezer
  • Thrown away leftovers that became science experiments in the fridge
  • Washed the walls downstairs
  • Dusted the living room
  • Dusted the children's rooms
  • Swept the porch
  • Worked on a vertical picture schedule for WB
  • Corrected schoolwork
  • Made up assignments
  • Played
Next is lunch... and then?

Life is so nice when everyone works together.

Please Take A Moment

Take the next moment or two to hug your children. Really be in that moment when you do. There is so much hurt in the world and, unfortunately, we just can't spare them. Our children belong to the Lord and we only have them a short time. And for some, the time together is trek through a Valley of Darkness so dark, it's unimaginable to the rest of us.

And when you're done, please pray for the broken and hurting children that may be living right next door to you. Pray for their parents. Pray for the Lord's mercy and goodness to shine as though those children's lives depended on it.

What did I do???

This is a special kind of Purgatory: Juggling the 3.5yo who stubbornly clings to PullUps and refuses to poop in the potty with the 19mo who refuses to let me put her in a diaper until she "peepee pahyees" even though she has no bladder control. He won't sit there long enough to go and she won't move until she does (which so far has been never).

Why? WHY???

[Not one minute after first posting this, Miss M came running to me screaming, "peepee pahyee!" Sure enough, she pee peed... on the floor. *sigh* Again, I ask you WHY!?]
