Yippee!! We’re heading into the weekend! I am so excited for it to be here. Nothing extraordinary planned – soccer games, house catch-up, Jd’s preaching at church on Sunday, and family time. But it’s the weekend nonetheless. By the way, I love the word “nonetheless” and hardly use it enough! Anyways, my brain is fried after this week so once again, some randomness for y’all!
I am seriously reading too many books at one time right now. Here’s a picture of the books I’m reading. And, can you say “eclectic much?!”
Toddlers. Wowzers! After
getting through it raising two of them, and then having a break from toddlerdom, I forgot what to do! This girl is taking me for a ride! She’s sassy, dramatic, strong-willed, and so, so, so lovable! It makes me crazy. Okay, her new phrase (and she isn’t even 2 yet!!) is “WHY?” I hear it 100 times a day. Then there’s the tantrums, clinginess, and whines. We also have the “can do it” and the “no!” also. I keep telling myself I’ve done it twice, I can do it again. I think the most difficult part is that the boys were one into the next with being toddlers even with some overlap. Now I’ve been used to dealing with older children and it just doesn’t come as naturally to deal with a toddler. Remind me again, how long does this stage last? Any pointers?!
Staying focused. How on earth when the weather is SO beautiful do I stay focused on getting school done with the littles? I just want to be outside! I think this summer we’ll do some school throughout it so we can take breaks when the weather is beautiful.
Anyways, I hope you enjoy your weekend! It’s supposed to be beautiful here and I hope it is for you there as well! And don’t forget, go to Facebook and “like” “Mommy Needs Coffee” to get updates via Facebook as well as participate in conversation on the wall. Love y’all!
