Day 9

Wednesdays are great because on Tuesday night Dance Moms records and on Wednesday I get to watch it. Ya, pretty sad week when that's the highlight. Just kidding... but it really is a wonderful awful show.

The real miracle of today was just the fact that I didn't completely lose it. I'm kind of a control freak, so when we have days like today where my kid is still sick after 2 weeks so we have to skip playgroup (which kind of keeps me sane!) and he's throwing tantrums ever 10 minutes, it's really easy for me to become really frustrated or just completely fall apart and feel like a failure. (I mean, come on; full-blown, collapse-to-the-ground, screaming-because-he-can't-explain-what-he-wants tantrums already?) Anyhow, I'm trying really hard to not overreact in these kind of situations and praying, praying, praying for help. And today through almost every tantrum I was given the strength to slap a fake smile on my face, remain calm, and ask Clark in my sweetest princess voice what I could do for him. I'm still so far from perfect, but a step in the right direction is great!

"And if men come unto me I will show unto them their aweakness. I bgive unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my cgrace is sufficient for all men that dhumble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make eweak things become strong unto them." Ether 12:27

I feel like I've already posted that scripture recently. So, guess that says a lot about me.. yikes.

I feel bummed we can't be real life friends in this stage of our lives. I bet together, we could convince everyone that play group should be every single day!

I love that scripture. It is one of my favorites and it would solve all the problems of the world if everyone followed it.
