Hi! I came over from the Handmade Home- I love what you said about your sisters and you knowing your parents loved every stage. I am immediately going to try to put that into practice. We got comments from 'Witchy teenage girls' down to 'terrible twos' (although apparently my mom really liked 3, which she called 'sweet threes'). I've always worked to be more positive in my house- and this is one of the ways to do it. Your family is beautiful =)Sarah
Being one of those teenagers... Let's be honest, we all had moody times. (I swear Dad always tried to work a bit extra one week every month. Our house was a hormonal place!) However, I agree, that our parents were awesome. Because they expected goodness and joy, we had it. Yes, we had our moody moments, but because of our parents that was the exception, not the norm. Our parents rock. Thanks for this, I need to find the joy in my girls a little bit more.
I don't have the kiddos but I can find more joy in the every day things! Thanks!!
