We had some visitors over and of course A and E were bouncing off the walls. Head butting their legs, jumping on their back and freaking out. So I chucked them both in the kitchen and told them, "You are out of control." Angrily A turns to me, hands on his hips and snaps, "No Mom! YOU are out of control!"

A comes up to me and tells me very officially, "Mom, I'm smarter than you. I'm not smarter than Dad, but I am smarter than you."

A and E were wrestling today and it was A's day. He was doing really good keeping his little brother subdued, although E put up a pretty good fight. Once they were finished, Daddy and I told E he did a really good job! He looked over at Daddy M angrily from the floor and said, "No, I din not!!" he flailed his arms on the ground and continued, "He's still alive!"

E and A were playing T-ball today with A's new gear. I of course laid down the rules. No hitting anyone with the bat. No swinging at the ball until every body and body part is clear. Simple enough. Not 5 minutes into it, I hear a blood curdling scream from A. E runs inside, eyes big, and says, "I din'n know what I was doing!" Big brother had a pretty good goose egg on his head.

Thanks for the Help

The Pathway is Clear

Do you ever feel like sometimes Heavenly Father has your life entirely in His hands? I know I should probably feel like that all the time, but I unfortunately don't think like that a lot. Today though, I really can feel his influence in my life. M was laid off about a month or so ago, which was really hard for us. I was looking for a job and could NOT find one anywhere. I'd applied to at least 50 places. And then out of the blue I got a job at a rehab facility that never hires new CNA's. M kept looking for another job because we couldn't really keep living with just this job. And then, I got another call and was hired on as a home health aid. I feel so blessed and so grateful to my Heavenly Father.

Things didn't work out like we thought they would. We figured I would work part time. M would find another job at another business and keep going to school. But now he gets to go to school more while I work! What a blessing and clear example of how Heavenly Father takes care of us. He watches out for us and is aware of our needs, even if we aren't.

Yay for two jobs and a more clear path for M to finish school with!
