Where is my prize?
haha these pictures of the primary class I teach at church. the 9 year old class. We've been studying the New Testament and I've really enjoyed it. The lone girl refused to do a silly picture.
Here is my key to teaching in primary: TREATS.
okay, back to today. where is my prize for surviving? What there is no prize? This is where I realize the prize is that I got to be alive today and kiss these sweet children. Well I did eventually kiss them all, but it started out really rocky. Really really really rocky. But after a good long cry and a big long bad mood, we did some fun stuff and it cheered up. I sure don't like being crabby mom, sometimes I sure feel like I'm failing at this motherhood thing but I'm not close to quitting (she tells herself). We are bond together this family of mine whether they like it or not! But we survived.
Even ended it well and laughing at Scooters Jungle this bounce house thing. Sure was cute watching Luke take Paisley down the big huge slide. I went once too, it was dang high. Didn't hurt that I whooped Luke at a game of air hockey 7 to 1 (the 1 was a cheap shot) where I banged out all my frustrations on the puck and was holding Ivy with one arm too. Did ya hear that Luke? Your mom beat you with one arm! (ok so I guess technically air hockey only takes one hand but whatever) I can never touch him on the Wii so I'll take what I can get. Now if only I could beat your dad oh then glory would be mine!!!!! WahhhhhAAAAA!
Here's where I let Paisley paint her own nails so I could clean out a cupboard. Maybe not my smartest move but she loooved and hey it was an off day for me.
Here is little Ivy showing some skin. She now can pull her shirt over her head and then is like "Woe! Where did everyone go, help help, get this thing off my face!" Its pretty funny. I shouldn't think its funny but it is.
Yea cleaned a bunch of laundry and its still sitting in those baskets in my room. What? I got to put it away? Shoot where is my magic wand I tell ya!
May we have a better one tomorrow.
p.s. As of Sunday, Luke has officially had 'the talk' . Felt strongly it was time. If I keep having the same thought after I say my morning prayers for a few days then I start to realize someone upstairs is trying to tell me something. Went well. I was a bit all over the place. I was pretty nervous but now I think what for? Yes you heard that, I did it by myself. Jason is going to do a follow up one in a few days to answer any questions. Our family is going to be an open book I tell ya. I really liked that I could ask my mom about anything and hope its the same for us.
The best part was that I had to bribe him with two mini almond joys to agree to it cause I'd been warning it was coming.
