Just Doing Life Together


Oh just enjoying his frosty. You know...needed to air out his bottom.

Parker has had a virus the last couple of days. So after his Dr's appt. I told him I would get him something sweet. Anyways, he didn't eat all of it that afternoon so I let him have the rest of it after dinner. My dad had already trying pulling his pants up once but Parker pulled them back down where you could see the top of his bottom. He has had an opinion about his clothes lately. Like "I don't wanna wear shirt" or "I don't wanna wear my underwear." lol. Please don't be surprised if you come over and my child has no pants on...just underwear. That is how it is here most of the time.


How cute is the bottom on this outfit?!

My mom's good friend bought Micah this and I love it. It is so soft and he looks so stinkin cute in it!

Having SO much fun playing in the water why brother takes a bath.

One day Parker was taking a bath at a random time and I was cleaning his room. I hear Micah crawl in there and he is laughing so hard. I finally decide to see whats up. Parker has the bath tub so full of water it is about to go over the top. Micah is standing there splashing in it with his hands...not caring one bit, actually liking it to splash everywhere. You know what I did? I laughed and walked out of the bathroom. I let them play. Even though it drives me bananas to have water on the bathroom floor and for my kids to get their clothes wet sometimes they just need to do it. For their sanity and mine. :)

Hi Lindsey,

I am a Christian mom of 5 with children ranging from 22 years to 12 years. I just love reading your blog. It reminds me of when my children were little. :)

After reading this post...I feel I must say something just as a precautionary. I have read so many stories of drownings and near drownings of children 5 years old and under. I am not trying to tell you what to do with your children, but I just didn't feel right not saying anything. Here's a link to a water safety article:

http://www.cincinnatichildrens.org/about/news/release/2009/water-safety-7-14-2009.htm

An excerpt from the article:

“Children can drown in even the smallest body of water including toilets, decorative fountains, bath tubs, buckets, etc. Any time you have a standing body of water that is accessible, make sure you supervise your child at all times,” Dr. Pomerantz said.

I hope you can understand, I am not trying to be offensive. I think you are a really GREAT mom!!!!

Please feel free to delete my post if you do find it offending.

In Christ,
Valeriie

Hey Valerie,

Thank you for your comment. I totally understand feeling the need to warn someone. I am reminded often of drownings since 2 of my neighbors, one of which is a close friend, lost their children to drownings. Trust me when I say, I watch my children very closely around water. However, I do want to say that I am a firm believer in the scripture "God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind." I never want my children to have a fear of anything and certainly don't want them to sense that in me. You always have to use God's wisdom and be guided by the Holy Spirit in everything you do. but instead of teaching my children to be scared of water we are teaching them to swim. Because the one way I can feel safe with them by water is if they know how to swim. Parker can jump in the water and swim to me without any floating device.

I am not offended by your comment! I hope you are encouraged by my response. Thank you and thanks for reading my blog!
