Wordish Wednesday

It's been a rough couple of days. Mentally & physically.
Time changes bring about many other things it seems.

Abbie is going thru a terrible two stage/growing pain/let's see how far I can test Mommy & Daddy stage.
She is very irritable. She can't make up her mind as to what she wants to make things better.
We did visit the doctor on Saturday and she had an ear infection, so I'm sure that doesn't help.
She woke up at 2am last night and refused to stay in her crib. She wanted the couch, she wanted milk, she wanted to watch Barney. Did I mention it was 2am?

Jaelyn is a not-so-happy camper with her rather new daycare teacher.
She refuses to lay on her cot a nap time & disrupts the entire room.
She puts her feet on the table at lunch time.
She does NONE of this at home so I know she is just testing her teacher.
She was punished at home for it last night but then I question if we are doing the right thing? {She was not allowed to play with any toys or watch tv and went to bed a little earlier than usual}.
When she got up this morning, she ran over to me, gave me a big hug & kiss and said "I'm sorry Mommy. I love you". So it made me feel better that we DID do the right thing.

Parenting is hard.
If you say it isn't, your lying.
I've been praying for guidance, strength & patience the past few days.
Pray for me since every little bit helps!

I know this will pass.
I know they are only 2 & 3 and just being.. well, 2 & 3 year olds.

Jaelyn & I snuck out of the house on Saturday to take a few pictures.
I love that she is actually enjoying the picture taking now!

The gold heart necklace belonged to my Mom-Mom. When she went to be with God in heaven, I asked for this necklace of hers. I remember her wearing it and just loving it. I wish she were here now to see my beautiful daughters and perhaps to offer some advice on these growing pains.
