He came back

Traekon did come back and the first thing he did was give me a hug and tell me he was sorry for being so mean. He must have stewed about it all day. I also stewed about it all day and know that I could have handled it a lot better. Thank goodness for children who forgive and forget easily! Thats all.

All grown up

So Traekon is all grown up today and proclaimed that he was running away. Oh and that he hated me. Alas, it is true from the words of my 6 year old " you are the meanest mom". Traekon loves to take his time getting his chores done in the morning so when it came time to brush his hair and teeth he had no time. He was appalled that I made him leave without doing these two very important things because he was g0ing to look "dumb". Yep he's already worried about his image. Oh and so funny... we've been telling the kids how they are following satan when they are grumpy and angry. So he also told me that I was following satan. He was pulling out the punches this morning for sure! How badly I wanted to let him just do these things, but I stuck to my guns and now I'm wondering if he'll actually run away after school or if he'll return? Guess we'll find out at 4:00.

A year gone

It's been a year today since my mom passed away. The hardest year of my life. I've found ways to stay busy and try not to think about it to much, but today it can't be helped. I miss her smile, her voice, her love... I just miss her! Knowing I willl see her again keeps me going. I want to be just like her. I love you Mom!!

Our last family pictures with mom. She wasn't feeling well, but she was such a trooper.
