Tuesday's Tidbits . . . on Wednesday

Camden and Rory had a new Sunday school teacher this past week, and they decided it would be fun to switch up their names as a joke on the teacher. They giggled about it endlessly at lunch after church. Yes, they've turned into the stereo typical preacher's kids.

It is entirely possible that I have over-compensated for Rory's boring school uniform wardrobe during the school year by taking advantage of sales at Crazy 8, Gymboree, and Tea Collection this week. Her closet is back to over-flowing, and I am back to mentally kicking myself for not keeping it simple.

This has been one of those strange weeks where any number of things have gone wrong. None of them big; none of them important, but enough to turn me into a very cranky mama. I keep reminding myself of the families in Oklahoma who have had their homes destroyed and family members lost in an effort to keep it all in perspective. It only works part of the time.

Today is the first day of summer break, and I sabotaged myself by deciding to sleep in instead of getting up with the birds to give myself time for coffee and devotions before facing the day. Rory, who is a very early riser, stomped all over the house, fed herself breakfast, and woke up me and Camden much earlier than we would have liked. They fought like cats and dogs until I finally sent them to their rooms alone . . . . at 10:00 . . . . on the first day of summer break. 

Back tomorrow with hopefully a better attitude and a picture catch-up post.

I'm with you on the whole "cranky mama" thing. And I tell myself to get a grip because at least I have my house, everyone is safe and the big things are all good. But I still have ants, it's still too humid and my freezer is breaking... sometimes perspective is hard.

I'm impressed they made it to 10am! :) Hang in there!
