I've Found Patience

I started my own little daycare. I watch three kids and my two boys everyday. I wouldn't say it's easy, because sometimes I am running to get everyone taken care of, but usually it's calm. I can say that I have been blessed with more patience. Here's why I say that. Yesterday I went visiting teaching, and I took Hyrum and Noah with me. Noah got a little crazy (lack of nap). So I had him sit with my while the other kids played. He didn't like that much and he started one of those world class fits. I had to leave because of it. Usually when Noah throws those big fits I, you might say, throw a fit as well. This time, however, I didn't get upset. I actually thought it was pretty funny. Not in that way "do it again", more like "he's crazy, stay away", but I was glad that I could laugh it off rather than be angry. I did tell Noah that he was going psyco which probably I shouldn't have. I am improving.

I am glad you can laugh at those moments, sometimes that is the only thing that can get you through it. I have had to laugh lately with us being sick so much, it is almost laughable how much we have been through lately.

I have your pay it forward gift, and I hope to get it in the mail soon. Sorry it has taken so long. Life has been crazy these last couple of weeks.

I am proud of your patience! Being a mom is really hard but that's what keeps us laughing. You are doing a great job.
