Sunday Sayings

Yesterday was a challenging day for me.  We were on Day 5 of my husband being gone in China and Sunday came right on the heels of a sleepover at Grandma's house.  We had 8 am church, a wet bed, and a birthday for a 2 year old to contend with.  By the time a good friend of mine came over to listen to me vent over a couple bottles of Blue Moon, all of the following had escaped my lips at some point during the day.


Stickers go on paper only!

Baby, no eating the markers!

Why is there poop everywhere....AGAIN?!

So, you'll eat a stale cheese ball you found underneath the couch cushion, but the dinner I cooked for you tonight made you puke on your plate?

Don't pick your feet at the table!

Luke Skywalker doesn't pee his pants, so if you want to be a Jedi, you need to keep your undies dry!


No joke, friends.  I was crying with my head in my hands at the dinner table.  It was just one of those days that pushes you to the very limit of your patience and then takes it another step or two further.  I'm so grateful that I had a gal pal come by after the kids went to bed to listen to me and laugh with me.  I blew off the tasks I was supposed to accomplish last night in favor of her company.  It was a good decision.

Today we are praying for the sun to come out, for attitudes to be positive, and for my patience to overflow.

And if I could avoid having to clean poop off the floor again, that would also be super.

    1. And quite honestly, I have no clue where the cheese balls even came from. I don't buy them!

  2. Ummm...will I be in trouble if I admit we brought them along when we came back from our house? Aren't grandparents supposed to feed them things they wouldn't normally have? I thought I read that in the rule book. I CONFESS - IT WAS ME!!

    1. No trouble! I'm actually glad to hear it. I was thinking they had been in that couch since Evan was home! I'm glad to hear they were a bit more "fresh." :)
