I think we are moving out of the initial "honeymoon stage" where everyone is on their best, careful behaviour. I knew it would happen & it is a good thing because it is part of the process of us becoming a family all together BUT, the last two days have not been fun! Lots of tears (all three boys - not me yet!), fits, testing of boundaries, whining, squabbling, tattling etc. etc. I am praying for wisdom & maintaining our 1-3 pm nap time so we can all get a good break from each other. Tomorrow is Sat. & John will be home. We will all be happy to have Daddy around - for parenting "back up" & for fun! :)
On a more positive note, I still think we are all doing pretty well. We are managing to get some home school done every day & are playing well together at least some of the time - play dough, painting, train set etc. We also went to the library together today & each boy signed out 2 books & 1 movie. Every baby step counts & I am proud of each persons' efforts. Still...I am tired! Must go rest while boys are resting!
P.S. I got sweet note from Luke and Mark yesterday. "We love Mommy." That's going in my journal! :)
