Sean is back on nights, boo. All three of my children are asleep at 8:03 p.m. Can I get an Amen? This morning I made the mistake of praying, "Lord, please help me be kind to my children today." I thought I would trick Him into giving me patience without actually praying that prayer. As all mothers know, praying for patience is one of the worst things you can do.
Long story short, Simon was in bed by 5:30, no joke, though he didn't actually go to bed til 7. He read from the time he got home from school until he went to bed. His mouth was so bad today, he was in trouble by the time I dropped him off at school this morning. Yes, it was that bad.
In the end, I won. I followed through with his punishment which was terrible. He didn't get to play outside with his friends, but his brother did. Oh the torture. He even had to hear us all outside having fun on this 70 degree afternoon while he was tucked away reading.
Tonight, I got an apology, the acknowledgement that it would be better to think before he speaks & several declarations of love.
Moving on, I created somewhere around 153 layouts this year. Probably a few more than that as I don't always upload layouts if I'm feeling lazy. There are 153 in my 2010layouts folder though, so I am picking from those.
