The One Where I'm Just Well Done

It's one of those mornings where both my kiddos want to crawl under my skin...clingy, whiney, completely unsatisfied with ANY. THING.

Little man woke up at his typical 5:30am waited until 7am to eat and then wanted to go promptly back to bed.  I'd have been a fool to not comply :)

Little Miss, however, has just potty learned at a little over 3 years old, and is taking to holding her pee so she can play longer.  And just forget about the dirty side of potty learning.  Slow and steady...she'll get out of pull-ups for that soon (we hope).  She also switched to a toddler bed!  Now, if only she'd stay in bed long enough for her to fall asleep...

"Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD:

and the fruit of the womb is his reward."
Psalm 127:3 (KJV)

I've been AWOL here lately.  It's the time of year hubby and I get scared.  Both our kids were born at the end of October.  Little Man came when Little Miss was just 15 months old and was born the week before her 2nd birthday.  Let's just say Little Man has reached 15 months now and it's *that* time of year.  Playing it safe isn't always safe enough.

As humans we want to control every. thing.  *ESPECIALLY* when it comes to family planning.  Being smart while surrendering total control to God is scary for us.

A baby would financially devastate us right now.  We're just looking up out of the valley we are in.  It's a long climb out from where we are.  We want God's will in our lives and for our family.  But our controlling human spirits *really* don't want our next baby to come in the midst of this.

And so at this time of this year we wait, stress, worry about things we should not control, and pray.

Philippians 4:6-7  do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
