With so many preparations going on this weekend for Robby and I to leave to work the Walk to Emmaus, I did NOT give Cydney a sucker (or two) to keep her content and happy in her high chair while I worked to accomplish things in the kitchen. I would never give my child a sugary snack just to pacify her for a few moments.
I did NOT wrestle Carson to the ground this past week to give him a spanking because he was being disrespectful, had a bad attitude, threw a shoe at this sister (on accident or on purpose, I am not sure which), and I was just fed up with it all. I always handle my children with grace mercy and never let them get the best of me. My children would never act that way...they are always kind, sharing, and very loving to one another.
While working the Walk to Emmaus this weekend, I did NOT forget to handle a few cleaning up details that evening. Due to the fact that I was already in my pajamas, and in my bed, I did NOT text a friend whom I knew would still be awake and ask her to take care of the clean up for me. I did NOT say a very un-Christian like word when she texted me back and told she broke one of the communion cups. First of all, I would never talk like that. Secondly, I was at a Christian retreat center on a women's retreat. That would be so inappropriate!!!
I did NOT forgo the family schedule last night and let Carson stay up to watch the Saints game all because I was too tired to even worry about it or care. I always have my kids in bed on time because as a teacher I know the importance of a good nights rest. I also would NEVER throw out the organizational attitudes we have all been working so hard on this month.
