May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, Oh Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.

900 weeks

No, that is not how long it has been since I have posted something!

I was just reading a good parenting article.  And then bam!
This enjoyable article said  something like
          "your child will only be in your home for about 900 weeks ....."

Then I had trouble breathing. 

 I didn't want to know that. 

But maybe, I needed to hear it. 

Because I have been rather stagnant lately.  If I am being honest, I have been rather
frustrated and short lately about things like messes and noises and mundane repitition.

I need to choose to embrace the mundane.  And keep working on teaching about helping
with messes and volume control! 

Because they deserve my best.

And because 900 weeks worth isn't nearly enough bedtime stories or hugs or
shared lunches or snuggles or child-paced walks or ice cream shared or holding hands
or giggles over snack time or block towers built or play-dough snakes made
or sweet prayers said.
