OH...MY...HECK...

Today has been one of those days... you know what I'm talking about. You're caught wondering if it's really possible for a toddler to PMS; or just how high can a scream get before it's only audible to dogs...


or maybe there's some starving family in China who could really use the food under that highchair... you know, one of THOSE days. After enjoying a lovely day with Margaret during which all of the previously mentioned questions popped into my head, Steven gave an Oscar performance to finish off the evening. We couldn't even have Family Home Evening, he was so bad. And of course, sending him straight to bed on a Monday night without FHE treats was probably our fatal error... it's like taking away presents on Christmas or burning the Thanksgiving turkey. We, in effect, had a nuclear bomb on our hands that had exploded and all that remained was chaos....
Oh, how I love my children!

LOL! This all sounds so familiar. Isn't family life fun :-) Actually, it really is--well, in retrospect at least. You just have to keep hanging on in there because "this too will pass" -- really!

That's right keep chanting... I LOVE MY CHILDREN...

Hey you did what you had to do with the naughtly behavior, can't reward it. Next time he'll know you mean business. Although I bet it sure wasn't fun at your house last night. Next time it will be one of ours.

I am diggin' the new blog! I'm about ready to change mine up as well. I like the 2 columns on either side, that is nice. Where did you get your layout?

Audrey said...

I can't remember the name, but there's a link to it in the left column under my list of sites. I've been wanting to switch to a 3-column layout for some time, but haven't been able to find one that I liked that much. Now I did... and I'm glad that it's brown and turquoise... my faves! :)

Cute blog, love! :)

We all have to chant that from time to time...my "faves" area always the days right AFTER the angelic ones. Why? Who knows. There is quite the sense of humor up in heaven I think.
