Thanks so much for all the encouragement from all of you (and prayers!). I think it got worse before it got better, however, tonight it is a little better. Thanks be to God for his pulling me out of the pits. Nothing changed on my kids' end, only mine. That seems to be the case more often than not. I actually think that maybe they got worse, but because I changed my response, attitude, and heart, it got better.
My kids are great...and they are kids...not adults. We have youth that sometimes behave worse than my two two-year olds. I know this. The fact that I have my kids with me is a blessing. I know this.
I just need this weaning process to speed up a little bit because this go-around is NO fun for either of us...but mother nature is stepping in and helping out (and I can't decide if I like that or not) because I drying up...I think. I am not totally certain, but it seems to be the case and Creighton is H.A.T.I.N.G it. She is miserable and inconsolable pretty much a majority of the day, but I have been forced to go with the cry-it-out method of parenting much to my dismay because of this matter. I think that is another reason my stress level hit the roof the last few days. I can't imagine having another colicky baby, but I feel as if I have a colicky toddler...not sure which is worse at the moment! :)
Anyway, all that to say, I am doing better, not much better, but I'll take better.
Today we went to several graduation parties, and then ate dinner at Taco Bell and then went to the Kiddie Park. I LOVE the Kiddie Park. It is the greatest thing ever in Bartlesville! Jeff had graduation and then project graduation till 5 tomorrow morning, poor youth minister!
