After working six straight days in a row, I am very much ready for a week off. And that is just what I shall get. *Big smiles* My friend Carissa is coming home for the week and will be working for me at the daycare all next week. I am so ready to catch up on things at home. Though it appears that someone who loves me has straightened up around home today while I was at work. I came home to my bed made, laundry taken to the basement and living room tidied. Even the table was cleared off! What a guy! I think he realized that I needed a little help this week. I am so pleasantly surprised.

I have found that in the past couple weeks, as I have tried to be less controlling, Adam has been more involved in the active disciplining of Josh. I have been less quick to intervene and more hands off when Adam is at home. And my Mom has been proved right, that when the wife steps back, the husband will step in, concerning their children or child. I am really enjoying watching my guys interact with each other... Josh just adores his Daddy and the other day we convinced him to finish eating his supper just by telling him he needed to eat his supper so he could have strong muscles like his Daddy. Adam showed Josh his big muscles and then we encouraged him to eat more. Josh promptly finished his last two bites so he could be strong just like his Daddy.

Thanks again for all your prayers after I posted this. Marriage is a wonderful and hard growing process. And raising children together certainly can put a strain on even *perfect* relationship. We all have our own way of doing things and I know God uses parenting to teach us so much about ourselves. I am a slow learner, but lately it's been a bit easier to "let go and let God". And I know it's due to the prayers and advice of those who care about us. Much love to you all.

I am guessing you won't be able to stay away from Momma Cat's house as long as Carissa is in town.

I can't wait to see Josh with muscles as big as Adam's!

Yay for husbands helping and also for little boys trying to grow big muscles;-)

What little boy doesn't want big muscles like his daddy? Great idea to use it as a way to get him to eat! Glad to hear your little family is doing well. Love you guys!
