When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. Isaiah 43:2

I'm exhausted. I got approximately three point two hours of sleep last night. About once every half hour, someone woke up whining or crying. I think the McDonald's was having a hard time digesting...no other obvious explanation.

Anyway, if there had been people in the stands watching my mothering this afternoon, they would have booed...especially during the part when I cried and told Kya her behavior was making me so frustrated, I had no choice but to sit in the corner and cry. I'm sure she will spend hours in therapy as a result of that little meltdown.

But, the kitchen is clean. And I apologized, and we did learn a little about Jesus today. And I have one tiny tree up in the kitchen and Christmas placemats and towels out.

I am glad tomorrow's mercies are new.

Prayer: Lord please help me renew a right spirit toward my children tonight while I sleep. Thank you. Amen.

Nighty night.

If I had to go back to my 1st trimester and do it with 3 little ones I do not think I would make it out alive! If you have only cried in the corner once this pregnancy you should be bragging to all of us!


Thanks Morgan! I feel better today and better for all the encouragement as well! Hope you are feeling great!

Thanks Rossie!

I think you are doing a great job being a mommmy, do not be too hard on yourself. It is good that our kids see that we are human now and then and it also creates great teaching moments!! I can only imagine how much money I will be shelling out for the girls' therapy someday when they discuss with their therapist all the "teaching moments" their mommy created for them!
