Okay mamas, is it normal for little ones to develop lots of fears around 3 1/2? I don’t remember Caitlyn doing it, but Sue is in spades! Moments ago I had to stand by the bathroom door while she went potty because of a “wierd sound.” What was the sound? The washing machine in the basement. Scarey, huh?
The other night she woke up yelling for daddy because she was scared. She ended up sharing bed space with daddy. She slept, he got pushed out. He did not get much sleep at all. But you know, he didn’t really complain. I think we are both pretty aware of how fleeting these days of littleness truly are. I think it is one of the benefits of having our kids a little later in life. We have our life experience and the life experience of others who are a few steps before us. My hubby’s sisters have kids older than ours and they often say, I wish I would have spent more time doing this or that. We take that to heart. We appreciate their wisdom.
Today we saw a deer on the way to daycare. It was a couple feet, at most, from our car. The doe just stood there looking at us. It was amazing. I said, “girls, look at what God made and we got to see?” Caitlyn replied, “oh we see that all the time at Grandma’s (daycare).”
Recently daddy has started telling Bible stories at bedtime. It is great to hear Caitlyn able to retell them to me. It is a joy and pleasure to watch them opening up to the word of God.
Patrice continues to be such a sweety. She has her first two teeth. We thought more were coming, but so far they work alone. She has said dada a few times, and maybe mama. She loves to chat and laugh.
We are in the process of re-renting out our rental house. We have had lots of interest in it. Thank you Lord. We are so thankful for that, and thankful for how blessed we were to have such a great experience with our first renters. They took such good care of our house. They treated it with love and respect. Words can not express how much that means to us.
We have so much to be thankful for:
124. Amazing renters that were with us for 3 years
125. Wisdom to enjoy the “right now” moments with our girls
126. God opening the hearts of our children
127. Our dog Stewie being so patient and calm with the girls
What are you thankful for? Please share.Survive til you Thrive!
