This child, had us on the ropes last night. He behaved all day, listened and did as he was told. But last night? When I said the words "early" and "bed" in the same sentence? He gave me "power ranger" eyes. Its the equivalent of "stink" eye. He lasers his disgust in his eyes and stares you down. If I didn't love him so much, I may not be able to smother the giggles that threaten to erupt.
So he pitched a Colton sized fit. He said not a word. He sat quietly, in the hallway, OUTSIDE of the room we had asked him to enter. Lets face it, at five days short of turning 9, he has civil disobedience down. He remained sitting there well past his bedtime. And when he couldn't take it anymore, he snuck into his room and removed the pillows and blankets from his bed, and slept in the hallway ALL NIGHT LONG. To spite me. Him and his power ranger powers.
Did I mention how much I love him anyways? He takes after me in so many ways. And seeing this stubborn, lip-jutting out, arms crossed- boy take a stand? It did my heart good. So glad he is on Team Vicky, I need that Colton kind of stubborn, and those power ranger powers? They can't hurt either!
Not only did the Mjoen's family bring yummy barbecues for supper, they brought, these beautiful flowers.
This plant was such a surprise too. Its a Breast Cancer hydrangea and its blooms are pink. It came from Levi Runyon's and the owner, Charlie, was a church friend and classmate of mine. I haven't seen him in years, but I was so thrilled to receive this from him! Thanks Charlie! I love how my past is showing up in my present day life.
Do you see the pink dress holder for bracelets and necklaces? Could it not have fit in better in my bathroom? Not only does it fit in, but it is totally adorned now with all my breast cancer bracelets!! So clever and thoughtful... thank you Julie!
Thank you for all the well wishes. I am falling behind in my thank you's, and replies to emails and I am so sorry if you didn't hear back from me. So far, this week is better than last week and I have more energy, which is good, since I also have so much more to do! Love and blessings to you all!
