my hurt myself; my can't walk

uuugghhh! if luca tells me this one more time i will gnaw off my left foot ("i am very bendy"- oh phoebe i miss you) anyway, today continued the saga of the crabby, moody toddler and the teething, clingy infant. luca's fave new way of acting out is slapping gia and me repeatedly with both hands. he will also knock gia's hands off of whatever surface she is holding on to while standing. when i ask him (scratch that, tell him) to go to timeout, he falls down and exclaims, "my fall down; my hurt myself; my can't walk." to all of you amused by the cuteness of these words in written form, i beg you to come to my house and deal with my son. gia could not be put down this afternoon due to her extreme discomfort (i am assuming). all in all, a long day. i ate dinner in my bedroom by myself just to get some quiet. we'll see about tomorrow.

my prayer: please God, give me the patience to love my children tomorrow and give me a renewed heart towards motherhood.

Carolyn sent me your blog and I was hoping we could be in touch as well. I think we could share a few stories of mommyhood, for I have a 22 1/2 year old at home. Lots of prayer and worship right, to get you through some days.
