I have tried many times to write an update on my girls...but as soon as I write a draft...it all changes again. I have come to expect the unexpected, when I do that...life seems a little more in control(aka knowing it will be out of control) I know that makes no sense to the majority of you. But some of you get it!
Well, things are still a little manic with my youngest. She has become very aggressive towards me, though I will not go into great detail, I can say she has a great right hook on her. Now if we could just channel that for good and not evil.
I have though a lot about food dyes and if that would change behavior. I have investigated it and met with other moms who have made the switch to no dyes in there food...I am trying to make the switch but WOW...dyes are in everything. I will keep you posted, though I have not gone 100%, I think most of their issues are mental health/developmental and neurological...all developed before birth. So little I can do food wise to correct, but every little bit helps with them...So I am hopeful that I may see some little changes.
I have tried to enter into this new year to have no New Years resolutions...but LIFE CHANGES...
To be better...a better mom, wife, friend, community person and CHILD TO GOD. But I can tell you 9 days into the new year...not doing so great...so grateful for a loving Father who forgives and loves no matter how much I disappoint and fail.
For those of you that struggle with kiddos like mine(or all mommy's), we need to take care of ourselves. I know easier said then done...I have tried small things to distress my day and reset my self(sometimes it is multiple times a day). Like today...read a little scripture(refreshment for the soul), sat and watched the last 20 mins of You've Got Mail while folding laundry...so the break I needed. I do these things as my girl is in time out. Mommies need quite time too, why not pair it when our kiddos have time outs...works out great :o)))) It is the little things, I have been reading a book about finding small gifts in everything that are from HIM...even the small things...it does restore the soul.
