June Update

Well our plans sure do change every day. Our house is back on the market because it didn’t appraise high enough and our buyers pulled out. So, now we don’t have a strict deadline of when to have the house finished but I did just have a phone interview for a job with Jekyll Island. So, we could have to move early for that. The kids are doing well. Bradie is sooo cute now. They caught some kind of eye goopy nastiness with a cold so they weren’t very fun for about a week but now they’re well and Brad and I are sick. We were able to go to the pool a couple of times in between sicknesses and it seems Bradie loves the water too–unless it’s cold. Brenna is still pretty brave but doesn’t seem to dive in like she did last summer. She still loves it though. I set up her turtle sand box on the deck with water for a little pool. She loves that too. She had to go for an early morning swim first thing this morning. Both girls were naked on the deck at 8:30 a.m.!

Bradie has started sleeping 12 hours at night. She goes down about 8 and sleeps through til 8 the next morning! Of course Brenna has started getting up at 7 now!

Discipline with Brenna is not going very well for me. I get so tired of her saying “I want.” It’s constant! And nothing we do is ever good enough or lasts long enough. Everything ALWAYS ends in tears. It really makes you never want to do anything for her. And she has started to be mean to Bradie too. I’m really sick of seeing her snatch everything Bradie touches out of her hands. Why do they have to have something just because someone else does????? Time Outs seem to work best, but it’s so hard to control myself and keep from just screaming at her. We have just a month and a half of the two’s left. Maybe the day she turns 3, she’ll be better. (yeah!)
