I did not journal at all for Tuesday, except when my alarm went off and when Ian got home from work.
Tuesday was a doozy for me. Keeping it real.
After coming home from CrossFit and doing a few chores, I went on a walk.
It was probably the best thing I did because once I got home there was nothing but bickering going on. And it just went downhill from there.
Lots of talking. Lots of reminding how privileges are earned. Lots of tears.
Then after my shower I find a note slipped under the door.
A two page apology.
Who says parenting is easy?
But there was also this too.
Them just being silly & goofy together.
Always this (laundry).
And some of this.
This boy LOVES art. Loves to draw, paint, create and just plain make stuff!
He's constantly making & creating.
Love this so very much.
There was also this.
I think she must be growing (which is causing the case of the grumpies).
And a trip here.
And prepping dinner hours before dinnertime.
Best idea ever.
And this texted me from Malia.
His and hers snow cones.
So cute ;)
This was also texted to me.
Ian's coaching Carson's tackle football team and they have practices 3 nights a week.
I requested a photo.....it brings me so much joy to see it.
Ian was gone for so long a few years ago and one thing I remember him telling me was that he wanted so desperately to coach the kids' sports teams.
And here he is. I'm forever grateful to have him home.
And one day he'll be forever grateful he took the time to coach.
Feeding the beast.
Team uniforms are totally optional.
(He came home and just HAD to put everything on BEFORE he ate dinner).
Makayla and I ate dinner without the boys (practice ends late and we weren't waiting).
Malia was having dinner with her boyfriend.
Hope your Tuesday was great!
