Ben got stung the other day. Apparently there was a bee in the pool. They came inside and told me about the bee. I said "don't worry about it, it'll be fine" (thinking it was probably just a fly) moments later Ben starts screaming! Ok so it WAS a bee! I should have known he would play with it, Ben loves bugs! He didn't cry long. He cries longer about having to take a bath, then the bee sting!
I have this daily inspiration booklet, given to mothers at church on Mother's Day a few years ago. Right now it's turned to this one and i like it....
Dear Father, Thank you for the privilege of influencing these dear children. Forgive my failures, fill me with wisdom, and keep us forever close to you in Jesus. Amen.

I am struggling with this!! I know there are a lot of things that are unfair in life. But to me, this has to be up there with the most unfair. Of course, i dealt with this to some degree, so that could be my reason for thinking this. But there are so many people out there who have no idea what this is like (and that's good!) but even if these twins do fine in the NICU, get out at the 35 weeks gestation, and impress the doctors (all which was true with my guys), it's still a HARD thing. They will be dealing with premature effects for a long time! My heart go out to the mom.

i told them i want to take a picture and show people what a good job they did. actually i wanted you all to get a good snicker!
Adam put his plate in the sink the other day after eating, WITHOUT me telling him to and i almost cried!! how dorky is that!?! it's just nice to see positive results from all the constant training. the "fruit" from my labor isn't seen very often at this age, but i must stay consistent! i continue to ask God for good ideas on how to teach and train each one, according to their learning style and personality. What a tough job it is! (but someone's got to do it...haha) Blessings to you if you're in the same season of life!!
