"Come what may, and love it!......Yet in spite of discouragement and adversity, those who are happiest seem to have a way of learning from difficult times, becoming stronger, wiser, and happier as a result." ~ Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin

Sometimes you win...

sometimes you lose. Me, I prefer to win. Today I think I lost or maybe just lost "it".  Noah plays me like a fiddle. He just looks at me with those big, brown eyes and I cave. He knows it and I know it.  I threaten the corner a lot more then I send to the corner. I don't spank. He's not fond of listening to me but you better believe he listens to his daddy. His daddy usually means business. Today I made the decision to be a little more tough, to say what I mean and mean what I say, to follow through, and to stick to a routine. Wish me luck because I'll need it.

He found a lady bug today and was so intrigued by it.


We said goodbye to Sue today. Sue was Noah's speech therapist that came to our house once a week. Now that he is turning 3 he has to move to a different program. It will be a speech class with other kids.  I hope there is a way to take him. I can't stand the thought of him riding the "bus". He's just a kid.

This is Sue. Noah took the picture.

It's true that when Asher hears music he twirls his little feet. Also true that Heath and I talk on Skype during the day if it's going to be a long one.

Okay, so I always think Noah looks just like you, but in that lady bug pic, he totally looks like Heath to me, esp next to the pic you have on you sidebar. And ummm... THE BUS?! Hello scariest thing I have ever heard. He's a baby! I'll be praying for an opportunity to come up so that you don't have to send him on a stinkin' bus, girl... yikes.
