Proverb of the Day

We are blessed with good children. For the most part they do what they are told, are kind to each other and respectful of us. Recently however Jonah has had a little extra "sass" to him, and Ben told him that he wished he wasn't his brother. I took them out ot lunch yesterday to talk about their behavior and how it needs to change. I think some threats were made. Predictably, Jonah tried to defend himself and Ben said he meant to tell Jonah how much he likes him, but the other thing just popped into his head.

In Sunday School today, we were talking about discipline and came across Proverbs 12:1:
"Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates correction is stupid" (NIV).

I made Jonah look up this verse as we were driving home from church. Things should start improving now.

If you found your way to this website, then your smarter than I gave you credit for! The idea of having my own blog has been about four years in the making. When Andrew was born and having his complications, it was therapeutic for me to email my family and friends with updates on his health.

Well, with a fourth baby coming shortly, I decided that this time I was going to do it right...I mean...I already 'did it right'...well, nevermind...I thought I would finally get that blog thing going.

"They change so fast when they are that small." My mother recently said that to me when we were talking on the phone about when they come up and visit us when the baby is born. She confided that she cries whenever she has to leave after we birth another kid. Well, hopefully, we can document the changes so not only Mom, but anyone can find pictures, read stories, and waste time.

Thanks for stopping by.
