Take Two. . .

I asked him this morning as he lay on the bath mat outside my shower if he had decided yet what he was going to do today when Daddy dropped him off at school.

"I haven't decided yet," he said, sucking his two little fingers and looking up at me, "I don't want to cry, but I think I might cry anyway."

"Well, if you don't want to, then just don't do it."

"But, I may have to cry because I'll miss Mommy. I'm still thinking about it."

Erik drops the boys off at school on his way to work, so I gave him a sufficient amount of time to get the boys to school and call me. But, he didn't call, so I searched for my phone. Silly me, I had not turned it on yet! By this time, I had not only missed his call, but I had also missed two texts from friends asking how JCT did this morning! :-) I quickly called Erik to find out what JCT decided. . .

He said JCT got out of the truck, took Mrs. N's hand, looked back at him, shot him a peace sign, then walked into the building like it was no big deal.

No tears.

No drama.

Go figure??

Erin, I don't have four boys...my oldest is only two and the second is only 7 weeks, so I have a ways to go. But I think when my boys go to school, it will be all mama-drama. It will be me kicking and screaming. I just tear up thinking of it. :-(

Hi! I live in a sweet country home overflowing with love, laughter, and little ones. I have been blessed to journey these days beside a man that I love, respect, and admire. He is my soul-mate and best friend. Together we are seeking to raise our seven children to be lovers of God, to be wise and discerning, and to be all that our sweet God created them to be. I am in the goldfish and cheerio stage of life, but I am keenly aware that these days are slipping right through my hands. This blog is my attempt to keep our memories safe for years to come.
