I’ll let others do the talking

Some of my favorite things lately:

~This post from Amanda Jones (Beth Moore’s daughter).  Seriously one of the most amazing things I’ve read in a long time.

~A great post on a strong-willed child.  I don’t have any experience with that, do you?

~I LOVE love love this house. It’s so different from my home decor (or lack thereof) and maybe that’s what I like about it. It just feels so cozy.

~Our friends Craig and Rebecca’s adoption blog. It’s so exciting to follow them on their adoption journey. And if I’m honest it causes me to pray a little harder that God would open up that door for us again.

~Amy’s post on why her and her husband went gluten-free.  Encouraging and inspiring. And perhaps convincing enough for me to start cutting out the gluten.

~BooMama wrote a post about the things we say to our kids. The comments are so funny. Especially this one, which was the winner:

I’m sure we’re the only ones with this problem. Certainly everyone else’s children have this completely together. But — my kids are a little pokey around bedtime. One day a few months ago, the Husband had HAD IT. So he instructed them in the bedtime routine in a more military fashion. I say that as people who have zero military experience, by the way. In any case, it went like this:

Daddy: You have 30 seconds to get pajamas on. GO! GO! GO!
8 yr old Daughter, sprinting off to her room: What if we don’t make it on time??
Daddy: FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION!!!
8 yr old Daughter, shocked (shocked!): OH MY GOSH!!

We laughed for weeks.

LOL! I kinda feel like a drill sergeant some days so I could relate. And I couldn’t stop laughing.

~Good mom, good kids? written by Owlhaven. Such a great encouragement, especially: “I cannot mess up God’s plan for my children’s lives.”  In my heart of hearts I knew that, but still, WHEW!

~And some Pinterest love lately:

Source. I never feel like this. Do you?

HAHA!

For my man. So true.

We might attempt to make these gummy fruit snacks this week.

Have a great week!
