MY serenity prayer...

I want to blog about school - G's first day of school.... and the two days of school since.  I have been waiting to get a week under our belt to tell about how she's delt with this new adventure... How I've delt with this new adventure... and how Lula is holding up without her sister.

But instead, at this very moment, I am in the middle of a straw that broke my back war with G about bedtime. I have had it! I've reached critical mass.... I am about to go super-sonic... and fly way off the handle!  Hubby is, per usual, on the road. Bed-time has been getting later and later and the antics have been going on longer and longer and.... I-CANNOT-TAKE-IT-ANY-LONGER!!

So I am taking a deep breath and counting to ten - writing this blurb and asking for God to grant me the serentiy... with my very own "bedtime" serenity prayer.


God, Grant me the serenity to accept that it's me,
alone, against the kids at bedtime;
the courage to stand my ground, be firm and not hit;
and the wisdom to win this battle.

We go through those too from time to time...it is rough! Hey, I don't think I really thanked you for picking up Taylor on Tuesday and for the cute blessing wand you made for her. THANK YOU!

We try everything to make the time before bedtime quiet and calm as all the books say, but V is ALWAYS bouncing off the walls before bedtime.

oh I feel you here. I am actually listening to mine in bed now 1 hour lately...still talking. She is exhausted yet refuses to just let sleep come.
