I've Spared You the Drama

I know it's been a while since my last post. But I have to be honest. The last two weeks have not been fun, and I haven't had any desire to write. You remember how I wrote about the ten things I love about blogs, and #'s 4 and 5 were about having perspective? Well, not even blogging would have helped with the perspective problem. Let's just say that husbands working a lot of hours, potty training and cranky babies do not make for a very pleasant experience.

I'm trying not to open the flood gates here, so I'll make it brief. Potty training is hard. I don't want to do it anymore. And here is some additional info for you.

Teething baby = cranky baby.
Cranky baby = crazy toddler(And who can blame him, it makes me feel kinda crazy too.)
Cranky baby + crazy toddler = stressed out mama.
Stressed out mama = God revealing many things that need working on in me. It's been down right ugly around here. Which is why you should be grateful I haven't been blogging.

I'm digging out of my hole of bad attitude and selfishness. I'll get back with you in a few days.

I am totally feelin' both you and Kate. Is this some "special time of year" for stay at home moms? I know I only have one little one, but lately, I have just wanted to throw in the towel.

Poor girl. I am so not ready to do the potty training thing.

I truly believe we get extra jewels on our crowns in heaven for potty training. And I personally think the jewels are bigger if you potty train boys!
We just finished potty training Samuel. And he's the most laid back child who usually would care less if his diaper was slap full of whatever. Elijah was much easier looking back. Go at his pace and don't get discouraged from those "other mommy" stories of tackling it in a day! You do what's best for you, Kris and the boys! Know that I am cheering you on up here in Missouri!
