From the Mouths of Babes...

(A little bit of background: Brock had been gone working in Tulsa all week and the boys and I were driving to meet him in Claremore. However they did not know this, because I feel it is easier to supply them with as little details as possible, that way if things don't work out then they are not disappointed and I don't have to deal with the aftermath, but if things do work out then they are surprised and everyone is very happy...this is my policy on many events (i.e. birthday party invites, going to see grandparents, when daddy will be home from work, etc.) You call it controlling...I call it just smart thinkin'!!)

Anyway, this is the conversation that Tytus and I had in the car:
T: "Do we have to go live with Jesus in Heaven?"
Me: "Well, if we believe Jesus is God's son and died on the cross for us then when we die we GET to go live with him in Heaven."
T: "I don't think I want to do that."
Me: " Well, Daddy and Mommy will be there and lots of other people that you love."
T: (pause, thinking) "Well, I just want us to all stay at home together."

Broke my heart...he is having a very difficult time with Daddy being gone and us moving. Surely we won't scar him for life!


  1. I know, I are feeling guilty about how your crazy lifestyle is effecting your kids. Been there done that. Just are only helping them in the long run because you are teaching them how to be flexible and that is an invaluable life lesson that has to be learned! You are an amazing mom! Don't let the guilt get you down!

  2. Thanks, Friend...I broke down several times yesterday. I know it will all be fine, but I am so ready to get the MOVING process over!

  3. However...I am getting rid of TONS of things and organizing like a mad would be proud!!
