Friday Fill-ins

Ah, yes, it’s that time again: another edition of “Friday Fill-ins“! And another of my favorite retro funny pics from Anne Taintor. (Hint to anyone who loves me: any product from her website would absolutely delight me at any holiday, including Mother’s Day, Christmas and my birthday, which just so happens to fall in August. Just sayin’…)

1. Family can be the biggest blessing or the biggest curse in a person’s life. Thankfully, my husband and I have many more blessings than curses! But we have our share of crazies, too…

2. My toddler’s life is literally full of ups and downs. He climbs up, I take him down. Again, again and again.

3. Trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) in the Lord and do good; so shall you dwell in the land and feed surely on His faithfulness, and truly you shall be fed. -Psalm 37:3 (Amplified)

4. When my kids are adults, they’ll realize all the discipline they received really was for the best.

5. Parents need to worry more about being their kids’ parents instead of their friends! And realize that when your kid talks back to you, blatantly refuses to listen to you or any other adult present, and demands to have everything his way, no one thinks it’s cute. Especially not when said child is over the age of say, two. Please realize that if your child won’t respect you now, he won’t respect any authority when he’s older; therefore you’re very likely raising tomorrow’s criminal. But YOU have the power to turn it around — claim your God-given authority and do your job, please! Stepping off my soapbox now, thankyouverymuch for listening.

6. If I only had a dollar for every time I’ve had to repeat to the men in this house what was said…I’d be a gazillionaire.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to my older two being at a sleepover and hopefully the baby going down easily so the hubs and I can enjoy a little couple time, tomorrow my plans include cleaning, writers group and shopping, and Sunday, I want to go to church, then chill out!

  1. Love your fill ins! #5 is so profound. ‘Raising tomorrows criminal’ very profound words. Never thought of it that way but boy do you make sense! Kind of scary.
