I heard True say that to Soul the other day and how true it has been lately. She has been one tough cookie to deal with of late. I don’t know if it’s a really late onset of the terrible two’s, but she has been leaving me (all of us) feeling so overwhelmed. Her obedience has not been “right away, all the way, with a happy heart.” Lately it’s been… no, no, and NO!!! She’s definitely a firecracker. I seriously tell everyone to pray for her and for me because we haven’t been getting along lately. No joke. Actually, she doesn’t get along with anyone. I’m hoping this attitude of defiance passes quickly.
This week’s learned, links, and thankfulness…
This week was the first time Glow ever cried when I told her, “No.” It was so sad, but for her own good.
True really wants to learn to sew. She says next year, she will make her own costumes.
I so want to make these cloud magnets. They would make cute Christmas presents!
The Next Big Thing was another good heart check for me.
Love this cute and simple, vintage Halloween decorating ides. Those bottles are so good!
Thankful Halloween costumes are done. The girls will get to wear it to school, ballet class, and on Halloween night!
This would be so cute for when the cold weather hits. I have carpel tunnel so my hands need these!
My sister has got some serious skillz. Yes, with a z because she is just that amazing.
This week has been tough as a lot of people in our church family are going through some really difficult circumstances, but I am so thankful to God for the grace that has been poured out regardless during this time of suffering. This Sunday is our church anniversary and if you anyone is in the L.A. area and would love to drop by our gathering, we’d love for you to join us!
Thankful that next week is November. I love November!!! Turkey and stuffing, here I come!
We went to the craft store this week and there was all this Christmas stuff up and the girls said, “Mommy, why do they have Christmas here? It isn’t even Halloween yet.” My response, “It’s because they want to make money.” I wasn’t sure what else to tell them. Maybe I should have told them that they didn’t want to procrastinate and then it would have led to discussion of a new vocabulary word (and hopefully they would learn procrastinating is a bad thing). It baffled their mind to already be decked out for Christmas. Are the Christmas decorations already up at your local stores?
