To all the moms out there: Have you ever had one of those days where you are literally counting down the minutes till your husband is home and can give you a much needed break?! Shepherd is SUCH a handful! I do my best to stay on the go so that I wear him out by his naptime or bedtime...but between Rauly's naps, and meals, baths, and chores...it can take me longer then expected to step foot outside. Yesterday was one of those days...it was rough for everyone. Shepherd peed on the floor twice, pooped and didn't tell us and ended up getting it all over our comforter (it's at the dry cleaners now), ended up requiring 3 baths due to getting in to dirt/food/and something I won't even say (it doesn't take a genius to figure it out). I spanked him, sent him to his room and cried right along with him a few times...whew,...I'm not joking when I say it was rough for everyone! I asked myself out loud yesterday, "where is my beautiful, sweet, angelic and quiet little boy that I birthed 2 years ago?"...Chad laughed and said "honey, he's gone...never to be seen again!". We're all recovered today, but I'm tellin' ya'...yesterday I was kickin' myself for not putting him in school!
Today thankfully has been much better! Out of all of the seasons, fall is by far my favorite! Because the weather was so nice today, we went to Skidaway Island National Park and enjoyed a picnic lunch. (We're trying to stay on track with our goal to learn more about the history in this area.) Next we went to the mall to buy some new clothes for Chad. He's lost 63 pounds in 6 months and is now in a size large shirt and 36/38 pants. It's been fun for him trying on new clothes...not so fun for our budget! ;)
We're home now, both kids are down for a nap and I think we're about to join them! Hope you all have a great day!
