Heart Issues

Thank you dear child. You know I  am struggling right now with some things. Yet you continue to lift me up. Even when I know I am not being the mom you deserve right now. 
Let  me honest dear blog readers. I have had a couple of bad parenting weeks. Lots of struggles and heart issues. It is so hard because I want to be more patient, I want to help my children have open hearts. I want to take away their fears and make everything perfect. I have to remind myself that it is not my job to open hearts. I can only guide them. Ultimately it is between them and God.
  Today I am choosing to be grateful for little victories.

Snow Dough

I love Pinterest and really try to make the recipes and ideas I pin. Today we made snow dough. Super simple and super fun. 
1 cup hair conditioner 
4 cups baking soda 
Mix and play. The kids built snow men and pretended it was snowing.

No Good Rotten Day Two

Day 2 of the no good rotten day. The day went well. We had a little rain. I actually like rain when I can enjoy it. I heard the wind blowing but that is normal. Let me tell you, when you are surrounded by corn fields you really hear the wind. 
Then a child got a little mouthy and went to bed early. 
That actually was a good thing because a few minutes later she started screaming. MOM THE TRAMPOLINE IS IN THE CORNFIELD, THE FENCE IS GONE. 
  So everyone takes off running. While my house is surrounded by cornfields we have a road close. So the teens ran out to get the trampoline to keep it from going into the street. 
   I am amazed at how the trampoline looked like a folded burrito when they got it back here. 
You know things like this only happen when your husband is away. 
You know what, I choose to say this was lot a bad day.  Because we are safe and we have wonderful friends who will come to fix the fence.

Flat Daddy

Jacob was introduced to flat daddy today. He was beyond confused. He kept trying to take his patches off. I think it is time for a new flat daddy since my husband does not wear glasses any longer. 


Happy 5th Birthday!

It's his birthday. His fifth birthday, no longer a preschooler buy by big boy. I love this boy so much. He is 5 but you know that. What you don't know is that this boy loves to be held. He cries at everything. He loves to help out. He cries at everything. 
Sometimes he prefers to hang out with me at church instead of going to his class and I don't mind one second. 

His favorite things paw patrol and anything crafty. He loves to be outside riding his bike.

He has recently taken on the big brother role to Jacob. Watching them play together is amazing.
Happy Birthday baby boy!
