    I love this post! Thanks for being so honest. I'm only the mom of a two year old and I feel like I need to stop comparing sometimes too. It's hard not to when you are having a rough day, but in the end everyone does what is best for their children whether it is considered best practices or not. πŸ™‚ Enjoy your weekend. Megan

    Okay, so far I think this post just might be my all-time favorite from you! πŸ™‚ I LOVED all the photos and have to be honest with you…when you originally posted the final beautiful photo of you and your kids for Easter and said that you had to threaten to take away all the Easter candy, I doubted you big time! πŸ˜‰ I just couldn't believe it by looking at the finished, polished project. You are beautiful and you have great looking kids, even if you are all not so perfect. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the encouragement. I am so thankful for the privilege of being the best mother in the world of my kids!

    I really needed to read this today! I have been struggling to figure out how to handle some behavior issues with my son while maintaining my full time job and day to day stuff and I have been stressed to the max lately because of it. But this post combined with my church service this morning made me realize that God trusts me with him and will give me the tools I need when I need them. Thanks so much for your encouragement! You have a beautiful family!
