My Super Sunday Song

Okay, since I am lacking in inspiration, aka, my kids have done nothing cute and or exciting for me to blog about, I decided to do this My Super Song Sunday! Sounds fun, huh?!? Really what it amounts to is me picking a song that I really like this week, and post a video and force you to listen to it and love it as well okay at least listen to it! So, my first Super Sunday Song is Among the Thirsty- I'd Need a Savior. My friend Randa sang this for special music at church today and to say it was chill inducing was an under statement! It is really a beautiful song, and I could give you a millioon reason why I love ti so much, but for space and time constraints, I will just say it is just reminds me how loved I am!

As, I was going in to pick Cooper up from school today, I found I was holding my breath. Literally not breathing and also putting myself into a full blown panic attack, because I was so worried they were going to tell me he misbehaved again today. I paused outside the door, I sent up a little prayer to a gracious and merciful God to please take pity on me! His teacher met me at the door, UGH oh, no, not again, my fragile heart can't take it God! She says"Just wanted to let you know Cooper had a really good day today!" Praise God!! I snatched him out of there as quickly as I could to ensure we still had a good day! WHEW!

It is so funny when I think about it, a little sad really, how much I base my worth on my children. I wonder if it would be the same if I had a job outside of the home? But, since my job right now is raising my children, I feel like I have failed at my job when they misbehave or don't do well at things. I really need to get over that, they are human just like I am and just like I do they make mistakes. Thank goodness I am not getting graded.

We have been doing this study at church called the Parent Adventure. It has been a really good study, I have learned a lot from it. I picked out the study because it was my turn to teach and while it was not exactly what I was looking for in a parenting based study, I have really enjoyed it. One of the first things it teaches you is your kids, they aren't your own, from the very beginning they are God's and it is my job as a parent to help them learn to live a life with Him. While I may have all these goals and plans for them, they don't really matter because in His infinite wisdom God has a plan for them all His own, and it is my job to help them figure out that plan, whatever it may be. I have also learned that my life is blessed by God, and not just during the good times, even when I have a biting 4 year old, or two sisters who can't seem to get along, in the midst of homework, housecleaning, gymnastics, choir, and basketball, right in the middle of all these good and bad my life is so blessed and it is blessed so much more than I deserve!

Just When I Think...

he has the school thing all figured out, BAM he socks me in the gut! When I picked up Cooper yesterday he was sitting in time out. I was then informed by the teacher that he had bit another kid. Bit him! I can count on one hand the times he has bitten one of his sisters, so this is not like something he does frequently. I was floored! I just have a feeling this is what it is going to be like all the time with him, always something!! UGH! We talked about how you aren't supposed to bite people and he did get a spanking. He promised he would never do it again. He better not that is all I have to say
