“Hate” is a hot word around here lately. Kendall hates Lowell. Lowell hates Kendall. Lowell hates me when I say he can’t have any more Jolly Ranchers. Leyna hates going up the stairs AGAIN to put stuff away. They all hate cleaning their messes. Kendall hates Scott for taking away his XBox when he doesn’t […]

  • Jennifer @ WrittenByJennifer - Nice to see I’m not the only one who let’s the kids curse within the confines of the house.

    And Sophia *hates* going up and down the steps as well (must be a thing with 6 year old girls). Well, if you’d stop leaving stuff where it doesn’t belong you wouldn’t have that problem. Just remind her soon all she’ll have will be just 3 steps to get in and out of the trailer.ReplyCancel

Step 1: Force yourself to move. Get out of bed, off the couch, out of the house, drive somewhere, step away. Step 2: Stop thinking about your list. Stop looking at the big picture. Stop thinking about what needs to happen after the next thing that happens. Step 3: Just. Do. One. Thing. It doesn’t […]

Is it because I’ve been through this enough now that I can sense these shifts? I can look at him and just feel and know that he’s grown. Not just that he’s bigger, and boy is he bigger- filling out 12 month outfits that finally let me buy both his and Lowell’s clothes from the […]
