Going into battle!
Well today was the first day I had to go to church all by myself! Yeah I know, whiner! But I've been really nervous. In our old ward we gratefully had my mom to play with and help with Merik during sacrament meeting but in our new ward it literally takes everything out of both Pat and I to keep Merik under control and not screaming and to keep Karma-who's nap time is during the meeting, from melting down. So today as a single mom I marched into battle backpack in tow but with a secret weapon, a new mr. potatoe head! Thanks to the many prayers of Pat I'm sure, it worked and we actually made it through all of church! I am so grateful that we did it one, and two that its over!
This week was a typical busy week! Not much to report, but Merik did get his first spanking! He ran out into the middle of the street, so there it was a valid spanking, but I don't know if my neighbors who I'm sure saw the new crazy lady beat her little boy in the road would agree. Don't you love kids?
