This morning I yelled a little louder than I should have at The Boy...then lectured him afterward just to make it clear that I meant business.
I was a grouchy mommy to BuhBuh who was a little squirrelly getting ready for school this morning.
Did I tell either of them I loved them before they got on the bus??
I worry daily about how I parent my children.
I worry most about how I parent The Boy.
I spent most of my morning on the computer surfing for new houses, reading blogs, and researching vacation ideas while Little Dude watched too much TV
Some days I really want a new house.
Most days I am perfectly content because I know that we are financially comfortable and I do enjoy being "close" to everyone when we are home.
I do want a kitchen make over though.
I was glad that My Sweetie had a long drive to an appointment today because I got to talk to him on the phone. We communicate best that way.
I love him so much.
I hope he knows it.
I thought about swatting Little Dude's butt because he continued to sit on the train table after I moved him multiple times
My floors are dirty
I have sheets and blankets that need to be washed
I have not yet balanced my checkbook for February
I have laundry to fold in the dryer and piles to put away
I had fun playing games with Little Dude after lunch.
I'm so glad he's part of our family.
I was too busy texting my brother while Little Dude and I were playing ball and he got upset with me
Little Dude had no desire to take a nap at 1 p.m. and had a meltdown letting me know
I closed the door to my bedroom and let him cry
He peed his pants while screaming at the bedroom door
I wonder if that was my fault?
I suppose I'll do more laundry
Once he calmed down and I read him some stories, it took Little Dude 2 minutes to fall asleep next to me.
While he was falling asleep I read my Bible
I'm glad to finally be done with Exodus.
It was mostly boring and I skimmed most of it.
The next two book pairings are Leviticus and Hebrews
I doubt Leviticus will be much better.
I'm not allowing the kids in the house when they get home.
I'm making them stay outside and play.
I plan to join them.
Dinner will be late.
I plan on making Tilapia.
I don't like cooking fish.
I should be spending some time finishing up with the planning of the Sunday evening Lenten service.
I should also probably put a little more thought into the Monthly Youth Night I am leading tomorrow night as well.
I'm not worried because I know I will get it done
Tomorrow is a new day......(THANK GOD!)
The best part about Saturdays is not having to get kids ready for school.
I hope I can sleep in until at least 8
8:30 would be best
9 would be a dream
Anything after 9 would just be too selfish
I will not feel guilty about them helping themselves to pop tarts and watching TV
