last night camden threw a bedtime tantrum that could have ended the wasn't his that age i suppose. i am learning patience i guess...but i get frustrated...mostly with myself and my determination not to just give in. so we rock, and he cries in his crib and we try the bottle...and it isn't because he isn't is because he wants to go to bed on his own terms...even if that means that he is fussy for two straight we are pushing through this "phase"...and having a sick kiddo for the last 4 days didn't help things. after an hour of wailing and thrashing that little body finally gave 11pm. needless to say, i was done with the day and stormed into my bedroom very dramatic like and threw the covers over my pounding head...but then i felt a hand on my shoulder and a husband whispering: "it will be okay"...and it made me feel a little better. so, feeling bad for my mean mommy behavior i went into check on that little man of mine...and i found his daddy leaning over his crib, kissing him goodnight. and i realized how lucky i am to have this family of mine...tantrums and all.


  1. Oh... I love this. Your family is fabulous.

  2. You don't know me, but I went to high school with Billy but he probably doesn't remember me anyway because he was older and we never really hung out. But anyway..

    I love to read your blog because I think you are absolutely amazing! I cry every time I read your posts! I have 5 kids with the older two not even turning three for another five kids under the age of 3 (two sets of twins that are 10 months apart). I have a HARD time with this parenting thing. We were only married for a couple months before we got pregnant. It was unexpected and I guess I am just selfish and missing my "old life" but I know I shouldn't complain. I know that all of these kids are blessings and that they are here for me.

    Anyway, You just seem like such a strong, amazing women and I really need to take lessons from you! I hope God continues to bless you and your beautiful family. Thank you for showing me what it is to be a great matter how hard it matter what!

  3. I feel your pain! And your luckiness. :) Brycen's problem is that he likes to be around the action. So if we're still up, he wants to be too. Silly little babies. PS Brycen started grabbing his feet this week and playing with them. It reminded me of Camden when he started doing that!
