Since we got our first foster baby 6 years ago, I stopped really blogging. It's one thing to ignore my own children to blog, but I just couldn't do it with someone else's baby. (totally kidding, I used to blog when I nursed my babies or they were sleeping) We adopted our Ray on Jan 7th, 2018. PRAISE GOD FINALLY, since we got him when he was 12 weeks old and he is almost 7.
On August 7, 2016 we got another baby. He was just 6 days old. We still have the little firecracker and I just turned 50. Wow, what a difference raising a toddler when you are a grandma. Lord help me!
This being the case and summer here, I was intrigued by a podcast I started listening to. I have been in podcast heaven...its the only way I can convince myself to workout at the gym or clean. It has been a lifesaver.
When I listened to Why you were folding podcast. I heard about The Well-Behaved Child: Discipline That Really Works! I especially appreciate Catherine spending extra time with her show notes. Don't forget to look at them! I have really utilized them, especially since its hard to take notes on a treadmill or with weights in your hands!
I am trying to get my kids to heaven one good behavior at a time. Things always get crazy with the change of schedules. So we are trying the advice from the book and my added stars for good and extra work!
▪ Checks 1-3 are warnings

READING: 15 MIN 1 STAR

I will let you know how it turns out. Please pray for my kids and those in my care that they will be the saints God has created them to be. I pray that their sins will find them out and they won't fall into any bad behaviors.
THY WILL BE DONE!!! +JMJ+
