Happy Friday, friends!
It’s time for another edition of Friday Five, where I will be sharing five things – my new TV obsession, reasons I love my husband, what are plans are for the weekend. Literally, anything.
If you want to keep up with what’s going on at the farm each day, pop on over to INSTAGRAM and follow us there. I share different things on all social media. Don’t miss out on some super cute pics and mama wisdom that may not make it on the blog!
one | st patty’s day
Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you all. Drink a green beer for me or eat some green pancakes. We celebrate the holiday every year pretty bittersweetly. Today is also my mom, Patty’s, birthday. She would have been 58 today. She has partied in Heaven for the last 15 years while we quietly remember her here. Happiest of birthdays, Mama. For that reason, we will always call today St. Patty’s Day.
two | church
Something has happened to me friends. I’m changing. I’m growing closer to God every single day. We have spent 4 Sundays at Maryland Community Church and I am loving it. The kids absolutely love it. They talk about Jesus all week long. And by Tuesday I am longing to be back in that sanctuary de-stressing and thanking God for all he has given me.
three | sons
I will admit that I have always felt just a bit closer to Jase than the girls. In no way am I saying he is my favorite child but there’s always been something different about my relationship with him. Maybe it’s because he came home from the NICU first and for a few weeks it was just the two of us before the girls came home. I can’t give you a good reason why I’d rather rock him to sleep at night or that I still caudle him the most (maybe too much) 4 years later. All I know is that for so so so long he was mine and I was his.
This morning he told me he hated me. Not in a joking, I’m just trying to get my way way. He looked me right in the eye and with all the aggression a little boy can build up he said he hated me. And I could slowly feel my heart breaking. Since then he’s told me the same thing at least 3 more times. He’s been really violent lately too – hitting and punching me.
I can tell you for sure that this behavior happens when he doesn’t get his way. Any advice? Nothing I have done to punish him seems to be working. I want my sweet boy back. This boy I have now is making my heart hurt.
four | fair oaks farms
Last weekend we visited Fair Oaks Farms in Fair Oaks, Indiana with Daddy and his 4-H Tractor Club. To say we had a blast would be an understatement. Cows, pigs, and fun, oh my! Look for a full blog post on our adventure soon.
five | summer vacation
The hubs and I finally had the time to sit down together to plan our summer vacation. And we chose…drumroll, please…Gulf Shores, Alabama. The beach and the south are two of my favorite things and the kids are super excited about visiting Alabama again. This is where we will be staying. I am counting the days…
