Lessons from my week and those new Oreos

We have had a good, busy week.
Lots of wiping green snot these days.
I didn't know the green snot rule--Wilder didn't get to stay in his MAPS class; I was mortified!
This week was one for realizing that loving people and having them
"be my drug" (it seems that is my tendency) can sometimes have its pitfalls...
like times I read too much into a verbal comment then decide my feelings are hurt.

It was for realizing that I have a husband and best friend who truly wants what's best for me, Wilder, and Story. That the hard work we are putting into our marriage is so paying off.
That going to God first, not friends or Facebook, really has its perks.
That the 100-anniversary Oreos with sprinkles in the center are just so-so.
That Target has cute $2.78 bunting.
That when I'm misunderstood, I must understand that God understands.
That taking Wilder to preschool on his first day will have me quite in shambles; I will be that mom with the camera and running mascara. We are waiting until next fall (he has an August b-day; he will be 4) and got him into the Christian place that is 1.5 minutes from our house. Just two mornings a week, from 9-11:30a.m. So I can still "home school" if I want (which better mean baking cookies and going on nature walks!).Spray tans really do make me feel a little more confident/positive self-esteemy.
And tousled hair is perfect for a lazy day.
have you ever tried taking a pic of the back of your head?

That, as a mother of two, this was a successful,
FUN week and no one is going to punch me if I say,

I'm proud of myself, darn-it!

I love this post and I SO relate! I have totally been there when they call me out because of green buggers and I'm way too sensitive, I read into everything. You are SO right going God is so much better than Facebook and friends first...although it's so tempting to go to friends first!!!

I love this post and I love me a good spray tan! They always make me feel pretty and skinny! My husband begs to differ though. He always tells me my skin is the color of an umpa lumpa! But what does he know?!

Your kids are so cute! I am nervous about putting my son into preschool too! We are thinking of signing him up this fall.
We will be okay, right?
At lease I keep telling myself I will be okay :)

Glad to hear you are turning to God first. Always the best way to go :)
