Laugh A Little w/ a side of FREAK OUT !!!

OK, I am going to give you all a big OLE fat laugh ... and something that will not surprise you ...

I AM IN A BIT OF FOG ... I am hot and heavy into parenting a 13 yr old and discussing what relationships will be in the FUTURE and yet facing some relational things now (that have my MAMA BEAR on high alert) all while trying to help Jeremiah set boundaries and then God places K in our home and now I am looking at PROM ... Did you hear me PROM !!! Please join me in my freak out won't you !!!! ... I am trying to wade through it like I am in the AMAZON JUNGLE here ... KNOWING that sweet K has lived life up until now on his own and has a history already of decisions and circumstances that I don't know about, yet I trust the Lord would love for us to help direct him ... He is amazing young man and seems to have a really good head on his shoulders, yet I know he is here for a reason and I want to make sure that we give him the tools he is going to need when he graduates next year ...

Parenting a 4 year old to an 18 year old is quite the JUGGLING / TIGHT ROPE act ... I wanna make sure everyone gets what they need, that we don't rush them growing up and yet prepare them for hard decisions ... PLACING GOD AT THE CENTER OF ALL OF IT !!!

Can you say I NEED A DIET COKE AND CHOCOLATE to calm all these nerves and clear out the fog a bit ... hee hee (just saying)

Good luck! Ours are 3-17 years old so I know how you feel! So much easier to deal with a 3 year olds problems isn't it?!

I was JUST thinking about this same thing this morning and I am only parenting from 4-11. :) I want each of my four kids to get what they need from me... it's a HARD balance!!! My fog was cleared this morning with a triple latte... we all have our vice!!! Haha!!

Will you be at C4C next week? I would LOVE to meet you!!!!

Skip the "diet" and have a little extra chocolate.

Your heart is amazing! God knows what He's doing.

You can do it girl! You are a super mom. I have a sophomore in college, sophomore in high school, first grader and kindergartener. If I can do it, you will be amazing :) Don't forget to order the corsage for prom...
