With all the determination that Miss Brynne uses to keep her sunglasses on her face, even as they slip down her tiny little button nose...
...she and her sister used that same willfulness to fight naps all week long.
It's hard to be thankful when there's been such a big hitch in our giddy-up.
I have wonderful mama friends who listen, and offer their wisdom and experience to me as I try to figure this napping thing out (1219)---and who give me permission to change up the schedule a bit (1220).
I have a friend who listened to me sob over failed naps and poor parenting for over an hour (1221), and then called to check on me the next day (1222). And then she wrote this. (1223)
I have a husband who gave me an afternoon off, so that I could get a massage and a hair cut (and made dinner too!) (1224)
I have a patient friend who lets the girls and I come over, so that I can learn to sew (1225). I have two dresses for the girls that are half-done (1226)-------so excited!!
That same friend was so encouraging at church yesterday when my girls were melting down (1227).
I have a garden full of color! (1228)
Brad and I have a great community group family, that prays for us and encourages us (1229), and blesses us by letting us pray for them too (1230).
I have Brynne, who loves music so, so, so, so, so much! (1231)
I have Hadley, who determinedly mastered a new puzzle in one afternoon.(1232)
And---the girls went right down for their nap today, and slept for three hours (1234). So, there's that.
Thank you, Jesus!
