#1. I do sometimes yell at my kids

#2. I do sometimes get mad at my husband

#3. I do sometimes let my kids watch Sponge Bob

#4. I do sometimes pay over $2 for a cup of coffee

#5. I do sometimes eat fast food

Notice all the "sometimes" in the above confessions? "Sometimes" is such a relative term :o) That's why I like to use it. I just wanted the few of y'all that read my blog to know that I am far from perfect. I do try to focus on the positive in this blog, but we have many faults and thank the Lord He does not give-up on us.  My wise husband is always reminding me that raising 9 kids isn't easy, but it is so rewarding.  Like last night he asked me, "Did you think raising teenage boys would be a piece of cake?" I had to honestly answer that I hadn't thought about that when they were toddling around in their Jon Jons. They are great boys though, and I know I need to keep my eye on the big picture.  Happy Parenting!

  3. Wonderful post! I'm finding the teenage years challenging at times too. Thank you for your honesty. Your words are an encouragement.


  4. I do all 5 also...except the fast food. I let my kids eat it sometimes..but I can't. I just can't. I'd rather have the expensive your blog!

  5. I can't imagine how you do it (and do it so well)! It must be an anointing from the Lord.

    Bless you!
