Back to School

Here come the triggers of school. I thought things were going well. Then I remembered that summer is filled with many days of freedom. School brings back those long days chocked full of resisting the "you need to do this, please" with controlling behaviors.

After catching her making a the NASTIEST face ever at me, I started asking lots of questions trying to get to the bottom of things. Finally, she replied,
"Oh, sometimes, I just like to think about how disgusting you are, mom."

Oh crazies, welcome back. I'd love to say I've missed you, but the twitching keeps me from that.

It then took another hour to get to the bottom of sin and deal with it. But hey, at least it was an hour and not a week. Healing! :)

Happy back to school, folks. Just remember, you are not alone. We love you. Jesus loves you and He will equip you for this school year.

Wow...hugs to you as you face the school challenges. Mine says, "Mommy, I don't do work for you. (when we try to practice things at home) I only work at school." And funny, bc the other day her teacher called to inform me that her "injured" arm was preventing her from cleaning up garbage, toys, etc. She was faking it to avoid responsiblities. And to get attention, bc she heard the call to me. After a talk with the teacher about this behavior, hopefully we are back on track!
