War with a Two Year Old

I'm at war with a two year old and I don't mean Anna. There is a little boy in her class that is a bully. She has been bitten twice in the last two weeks and he pushed her down in front of me yesterday afternoon. I witnessed him picking on her once at a school party last year. I know it's hard for me to say anything since Anna went through a biting stage for a month or so, but she was only 15 months old at the time. This little boy is about 27 months old. I think he should now better by now.

Cleaning Day

Ok, is it sad that I am taking a vacation day to clean house tomorrow. I am talking about a deep clean. I am going to clean out and scrub areas that probably haven't been touched since we moved in a year ago. How do things build up so quickly and where does the time go? I wish I had the money to bring in a large cleaning crew and let them loose in my house. I would also invite some professional carpet cleaners. We could just have a good ole time. I may sound OCD, but I just like things in order. I hope I can get everything done in one day. It is rare that you get a day off when the daycare is not closed. Wish me luck!!!

Quick Update

Things have been crazy and stressful. I like a slow, lazy Summer, but this appears to be nothing but. My stress level is at an all-time high. Due to the current economic situation, things are very tense at work. It is hard to leave it at work and it is following me home. I feel like I am surounded with negative energy all the time. It is all anyone wants to talk about. I try to be positive, but everybody has a breaking point. The one thing I do have on my side is a strong faith in God. I keep telling myself and others that the decisions that are being made are not from man, but from God. He has a plan for all of us and we are just along for the ride. I may not always like the decisions that are forced upon me, but I will accept them with God's grace.

It's been a while since I have posted. I can't figure out how we stay so busy. I am really having to learn to multi-task. Thank goodness for laptops, because I am doing this post while watching Anna play in the tube.

Last Saturday, we went to the zoo with a bunch of friends and had a blast. All the kids loved the animals. There is something special about watching them experience it for the first time. I had to stop Anna from jumping in with the kangaroos. She also felt the need to say hello and goodbye to all the animals. It was so cute!!!

My eyes are doing much better. Thanks for all the prayers. God is good and He lead me to the right doctor. My thyroid blood work also came back in the normal range. I go back in a month, but for now all is good. We are just so busy. I feel my house getting out of control. I really miss my cleaning lady. She only came every other week, but it was a big help to me. When I am home I would rather have family time, not cleaning time. It is rare lately that Chad and I are home at the same time anyway and it is hard to clean while you are watching a child.

The Lord continues to bless me with my health and the health of my family. He has taught me to trust in Him with the current economic situation. Every day is unclear, but as long as you have Him you have peace.
