Happy New Year everyone!
We rang in the new year with friends/Robb's cousins and all the kids. We had a great night.
a few goals for the new year:
*improve prayer life
*say 'no' less and 'yes' more
*give more (more on that later and an opportunity for you to join me)
*read a few books from my 'to-read' list
So far the year is off to a rough start. Yesterday in attempt to say 'yes' more, I let the kids play outside, and Sadler fell off the top of the play set structure in the back yard. Thankfully he only bit his lip and scraped up his chin, but it shook me up a bit to think of how much worse that could have been. I just couldn't believe it, we were 2 days into the new year and already had an injury!
The afternoon was chaotic, the boys didn't want to nap, and I was beyond frustrated.
Then this happened, an entire bag of oyster crackers, most of them crushed, all over the kitchen floor! Just what my day needed. The boys were eager to help clean up though so I couldn't get to upset!
and the cherry on top was when Sadler fell (again) this morning and hit his head on the corner of our baseboards (again) and bled like a stuck pig.
I brought him to the walk in clinic for stitches but thankfully he just needed to be glued! Silver lining :)
A horsey ride for my brave boy.
I feel so terrible he's always getting hurt. I got a little lecture from the doctor, which I know is part of his job, but it made me feel SO bad. It's hard to understand unless you have a wild child like Sadler, but its so hard to keep that boy safe. He's always running and doesn't watch where he's going, ever.
I'm doing the best I can. Praying he stays injury free the rest of the year, or at least month!
+I have one more Christmas party to post about, and then I'll be answering some questions a few of you have asked about our cruise trips and my weight loss. So stay tuned for those.
