So today! Today is our Home Study Day!!! She's coming to the house and asking us all the questions....
She knows us already and knows our kids...this is just a renewal...so why am I so nervous?
Does anyone else think it's completely nuts that we have to lay our lives on the line and be the 'perfect' parent in order to... well parent? What if they find out that I am not always the most patient. Or that sometimes I yell.
That sometimes I just say "Because I said so!" Because I just don't feel like coming up with an answer...lol
Sometimes I feed my kids peanut butter and jelly crackers for lunch because we ran out of bread.
I don't always give them everything they want and I don't always treat them exactly the same.
I have to tell them I am sorry frequently and regret that I don't always handle situations as an adult.
I do love them. I do pray for them every day. I do cheer for them at every function and I am their biggest fans. I am also their biggest champion.
I do kiss their booboo's and hold them when they blap, I clean up their messes and hold the tissue when they blow their noses. I sit up with them when they are too sick to want to sleep.
I do read them stories and share my ice cream. I hug them when they are sad and laugh with them when they are happy. I tuck them in and say night night prayers with them every night and the last thing I say to them is "Who is special?" WE ARE! "Why?" Because God made us that way! "Who loves you?" God and mommy and daddy!
So I guess I am not perfect...but the one who made us is... guess I will just have to rely on Him... :)
