Potty Training

Grayson has recently turned 2....I 'm wanting him to get potty trained. I have trained 2 girls and a boy so I know it eventually gets done but I feel like I don't have patience this time around. Everyone says it will happen don't push him...he will when he is ready. These people aren't changing the diapers that I have too everyday... : ) I need to Pray for Patience. He tells me everytime he pees or poops. He says, "yucky mom." He has gone on the toilet and lots of times on the floor, he even climbed on top of Alexa's bed and took off his diaper and went. She was furious.... I heard Dr. Phil can get a child potty trained in 1 day. Do you think he will come to my house? Just Kidding I will have peace and patience with it. Rejoice in the fact I get to train him and hes not at a daycare being trained by someone else. And love every minute with my last baby..........Grayson I love you!!!!!

My Munchkins at the Pumpkin Patch

Election at the Fisher's

This morning the girls got out of bed so fast they could not wait to see who our new President was. They came into the living room and I had the news on ,when I saw their faces filled with disappointment I felt awful. Alivia said, "Mom McCain didn't win what will happen to all the unborn babies?" They have been so into this whole election and are so interested in the issues and the differences in the candidates.
I told them that God is in control, and that Obama will be a great President. I told them about how awesome it is that history was made and that they will always remember when the first African-American became President of the United States. We talked about what a privilege it is to be a woman and be able to vote. I think they are ok with it now. Alexa said she thinks Gov. Palin should be the first woman President or maybe when she grows up she could be. I told her anything is possible......

Noah's thoughts......Mom who won Cain or that one guy Bama?.....Mom will everyone take those signs out of their yards now?........Mom can Daddy be the President cuz I want to live in the White House?......Mom can I have a Puppy?

It's a gorgeous, perfect fall day today. I love it!!!! I'm taking the kids to the pumpkin patch today after school and I'm not sure whos more excited me or them. My sister called today from Arkansas and said its hot there, as I was describing the day I thought I'm so blessed to live in Nebraska. (I will not say that when it is 20 below 0 and snow is everywhere) I hope everyone is thankful for the day God has given them.....

Gray's Celebration

My baby turned 2 on Saturday.....Time seems to go so fast. He woke up to Noah and his sisters singing to him and he responded by saying, "I 2 today YEAH" We had the Perdew cousins here as well as Grandmas & Grandpas.....It was such a fun day of celebrating Grayson's life and celebrating our precious friends and family.... We also watched the Huskers devastating loss. Grayson says to everyone he meets....."I'm big!!!!!" Now to mastering potty training.....ugh!!!

Stay at Home Blues.....

I'm so glad its Friday. However its 1:28 pm and I'm still in P.J.'s.....Doing laundry....and more laundry. Sometimes I wish we could wear the same clothes all week and nobody would notice. I have changed 4 bad....bad.....bad.....diapers already (as many times as I have ran one out to my garbage my neighbors probably think I'm running a daycare) and everytime I pick up a mess my almost 2 year old has created a new one. Where is my "JOY" from the other day. I'm trying to have a greatful attitude because I truly feel blessed that I get to stay home and raise my children, but sometimes I wonder what it would be like to be working. Well I have to go and pick up a PB&J sandwich that just got put on top of someones head and will probably have to give someone a bath.... And maybe.... just maybe.... get out of my pajamas.....(Kevin gets home at 5:30 so as long as im dressed by 5:25)

Finding Joy....

Today Im focusing on finding Joy in all things. I think to often I take the everyday things forgranted....There is nothing better than hearing Grayson yell for me in the morning. "Mom......Hi Mom.....Mom want milk"... Or the sound of the twins talking to each other down in their bathroom as they get ready for school. Discussing what they are wearing and what they are looking forward to each day.... Or when I drop Noah off at school and count the times he looks back at me and waves goodbye as he bravely walks up to his door. (he still blows me kisses melts my heart)... Or how excited I get when I recieve text messages throughout the day from Kevin just to say he loves me or to tell me he is thinking of me....Or the joy in reading Gods word in the afternoon when all is quiet.....All of these things are apart of my everyday life and are joyous to me however I often lose sight of them and other of Gods Blessings because Im to caught up in the hustle of life.....I will not lose sight of what is truly important....
