Mothering Matters

Well, hubby didn't have to work today. That's the problem with La-Z-Boy. Sometimes they work 60 hours, and sometimes barely 40. They don't give you much notice either. The checks can vary by hundreds of dollars every week. We've made it this far, though, and I'm just trusting God to fill in the gaps.

Anyway, Fred let me sleep in this morning, even though I told him I'd get up with the kids. I guess he just couldn't sleep, b/c he rose at 6am, with plenty of energy. I slept until 8am (WOW) and then barely had time to get myself and and Isabelle ready, and nurse Oliver before heading to Mothering Matters.

I am SO glad that I went. What a huge blessing this is going to be to me and the kids!! Isabelle really enjoyed the homeschool room, and I loved the speaker and small group. Suzanne, thank you for inviting me!


And thank you for inviting us over for lunch and a playdate, too!! Yummy food and good fellowship, who can argue with that? We did have a couple of surprises, though! Brian walked by me three times and said "hey, woman," while he slapped my tush! (He's 4.) And Isabelle got to feed their "pet" pot-bellied pig!

"hey woman"?? huh. Did you bust out laughing?

Oh, yeah I laughed!! (I also told his mama, b/c I thought she would want to know!) I heard that he slapped the rear of an old lady in the library today. I hope the lady had a good sense of humor! Brian is really a sweet funny little guy .

What?! He's a maniac!

He drains me with all his energy. I'm so glad you guys came over and had a good time. The girls really enjoy Isabelle.

I'm so glad you are coming to MM, I hope it blesses you as much as it has me.

I meant what as in "a sweet little man" Funny yes...we are working on that sweet thing though.

You know, I've realized that the things my kids do get on my nerves worse than other peoples'. I thought Brian was pretty behaved, and very cute and funny. Yes, he is energetic... but remember that I have THREE boys!
