If They Can Climb Onto It, They Will Jump Off Of It #boys

You may have figured this out by now, but we have two boys.  Ages 2 and 4.

I think I have more grey hair in the last month alone from these two turkeys.  Just kidding.  I mean, I hope not, I really don’t want more grey hair.  #truth.

Recently we had a day.  A day where my heart beat quicker with every acrobatic stunt they pulled.

I was tempted to put a show on for them because I was getting tired of saying “don’t step on him”, “don’t sit on your brother’s face!”, “don’t jump off that”, and to my utter terror “tuck your head when Continue reading “If They Can Climb Onto It, They Will Jump Off Of It #boys”

She Put Her Baby In a Basket… In A River

she put her baby in a river a devotional
In the beginning of the book of Exodus we read of the absolute horror of what the king has decreed.  He wanted to destroy the Israelites.  He wanted to wipe out the male babies.  He first ordered the Jewish midwives to deal with the “problem” as he saw, but this heinous king didn’t know who he was messing with.  No.  It wasn’t going to be that easy.  The midwives feared the Lord and would not do this awful thing, and so he had to do it through ordering that the babies be thrown into the river.

As I write that, my heart breaks and my stomach wants to expel the lunch that I ate with my own two year old son a few hours ago.

What kind of heartless, horrible, savage man was this awful king to make such an order?  He was evil.  Unbelievably evil.

Why?  Why did he want to wipe out the Israelites Continue reading “She Put Her Baby In a Basket… In A River”

First Week of Jk Behind Us and A Little Announcement

Well folks, our first week of junior kindergarten is behind us.  I doubt that I have ever known a youngster to love jk more than my kid.

Seriously.  He was a bit put off that he couldn’t go tomorrow… which is Saturday.  Aren’t kids supposed to be stoked for Saturday?

From my last post you may know that J’s first day of school I was awake at 4:30 am.  You’ll be happy to know that I not only survived the day but that I also put grumpiness away around 6:30… especially once realizing that my husbands sleep was just as sabotaged as my own.  The kids slept past 7… seriously, the only time that happened all week.  And J LOVES school!  Yes!  E, our youngest, is seriously missing his older bro and I am now in full swing of finding playdates, and in full cheer up mode every morning.  It’s devastating.  I’m not sure which is harder for E… that Continue reading “First Week of Jk Behind Us and A Little Announcement”

Thought I’d Be Feeling a Little More Sentimental This Morning

I’ve been awake since 4:30…. four thirty!!!!  I laid in bed for an hour and a bit before finally realizing sleep wasn’t coming, and decided the blog that was forming in my head as I lay awake might as well be written.

It’s the first day of school for my eldest, and no way did I think I would have time to blog today.  Or that I would be so grumpy… yes I thought I would be a little more sentimental today.

Actually I when I finally did decide it was no longer night, but now morning, I turned on the light to read my friend Kate’s blog.  Now there’s a mama feeling nostalgic about today… the way I should be… while I am simply grumpily dragging myself out of bed looking for coffee only to find we have to grind more coffee beans… which will wake the kids.  I’ll Continue reading “Thought I’d Be Feeling a Little More Sentimental This Morning”
