This part of parenting I do not handle well...I close my eyes, breath through my mouth and pray as hard as I can that I also do not hug the porcelain throne at the same time. So far so good, but it's tough! And poor Lucy May is cutting 3 teeth! You read that right, 3! The doctor said they could pop up tomorrow or in a month. For Lucy's sake we would like tomorrow, or today. She has been a trooper, but is miserable at the same time. **UPDATE* Lucy now has what Molly has, it's been a fun morning!
So if you could say a little prayer for our girls and for us, we are hoping something just didn't agree with Molly, and it's not the flu hitting us. Eric and I both are big wimps when it comes to getting sick, so I am praying enough Lysol and Clorox will do the trick to kill it off!
I wanted to share with you all some fun things we did leading up to Easter. A couple weeks ago my friend, Stephanie posted some cool Easter devos/crafts that she was going to do with her daughters, and I was so happy she shared because Molly loved doing them, too! I didn't take pics of everything we did, mainly because I forgot and I also wanted to be able to participate with the rest of the family doing them. We did our little devos every night at dinner, and I loved it! This was something totally different for us. Sure we read the Bible with Molly, talk about church, and other stuff, but we have never done anything together as a family, and I really want to start doing that after the awesome week we had.
One night we made crowns...we talked about Jesus being the Lord of our Life and our King!
Molly colored eggs with Eric's parents...we talked about the egg having 3 parts, like the Trinity...plus, Eric's mom brought goose eggs to color and they were huge! Molly loved them!
Do you see where the curly hair comes from?!
We also did the Jelly Bean Prayer with some friends at a play date, and I bought some Resurrection Eggs. Those were awesome! I recommend them to anyone! Even as an adult it was helpful to remember everything and talk about it with your kids. I am a visual person, so in each egg there was a little figurine you got out that went along with the Easter story. So cool! We also colored a palm leaf and read every story out of the Bible we could find to help Molly understand why Jesus loves us so much he would die on the cross.
Hopefully we can continue to do some family devos together from here on out. I want Molly and Lucy to be able to ask us anything and also to know how much God loves them, and I truly think that all begins at home with Eric and I talking about it. Have a great day!
