So...in spite of his endless cuteness, I fear God is using my son to remind me that we all have a sin nature. It has been a trying week or so with this child. As a teacher I always hated when parents would excuse their child's bad behavior as, "oh I was like that too" SO I definitely am not excusing his behavior, though I often see his father's impatience and my independance in him.
Basically lots of throwing himself on the floor and flailing and screaming- serious drama here- he isn't even 18 months! Like the other morning I was putting the top on his sippy of milk and it was taking too terribly long, I guess and he was bawling and flopping on the floor. We are working on signing to help with the whole communication biz, but I have to remind him always- It is kind of funny though- Sometimes I will just look at his name and say "Elias" In my best, slow teacher voice and he will calm down a little and sign "help" or "more". So dang smart.
He freaks out if I take something out of his hands- I have to say- "Can Mommy see?" oh sure no biggy- but if I don't ask- if I demand- big, fat fight. So frustrating.
So basically I have been just trying to lovingly call my son to obedience, which is really hard at his age because he can't communicate super great.And oh maybe hard cause I am not so sure what the heck I am doing!
He has been stealing the spanking spoon(s) and hiding them in Matt's drum..really? God help me! Yes that is my genuine prayer recently.
on a differant note I am planning a lil' Christmas Party- ok already invited over 30 people- excited. I like parties and this one is going to be adults only..kind of forgot that was possible- hope some people can come! All I know is yummy food, and Christmas music ( on Pandora on the BluRay- Happy Early Christmas to Me!) and friends- Sounds good!
Another different note - I want Iced Pumpkin Cookies all the time. Seriously I have made them um 4 or 5 time since October---I feel I should move on- and my hubby doesn't even like them much (no chocolate, sorry man). I think I will make them tomorrow- a last farewell...or that is what I will tell myself=)
Thanks for reading...I will get more organized and frequent someday,,,maybe...awww heck I most likely never will- that's how I roll.
