It’s Skyblanket update time #Skyblanket2016

I have been posting about my Sky Blanket 2016 project so far this year.  If you have been following a long at home, you would know that I have completed my first one due to a lack of planning! haha

So I went a new style of blanket for the next one. This one I can make as big or small as I need, and I think it will be a better fit for me.  I thought I would update you on the progress.

That time he peed on his brother

the lesson

Having boys has been fun, interesting, loud, and eye opening.  I have to admit sometimes they do things that would never have come to my mind as a plausible response to a situation.  Here is one such incident:

Our youngest has a tendency to make a mess in the basement bathroom, including make a mess of Daddy’s towel.  Since I don’t use that bathroom much, it doesn’t always get cleaned very quickly, unless hubby or I notice it.  So we don’t allow him to use that bathroom. He has to use the one upstairs that I will be going in, or past on a regular basis, all 3 of our boys know that rule.

Summer Fun Toys

As the weather starts warming up, we start to realize that summer is coming. I am not one of those parents that fills the kids days with activities, but I do try to have lots of things they can do! If they can’t find something to do, we work on school curriculum for the upcoming year, and cleaning the house.  There is no “Mommy…I am BORED!!!!” over here.  LOL If they are bored, they will find something else to do. They go searching for something.

Reading about Heroes and Villains

When I was having my boys I heard several things about raising boys:

  • they are loud – well 1 on his own isn’t necessarily loud, although I have 2 that talk pretty much non-stop.  But if you get 2 or more together and they sure are
  • they are active – I find this to be true! Always full of energy.
  • they are harder to potty train – I think that depends on the kid
  • they don’t like to read – this is NOT true in our house

The reading thing I have never seen with my boys.  I do find it depends on the books.  And I have to find the right books to get them reading, but I have one who loves reading more than the others, and he taught himself to read by age of 3.  He was reading chapter books by the time he turned 5.

None Like Him

As Christians we often attribute human qualities to God. It is sometimes to make him more relate-able to our human minds, but it can also mean that we have a wrong way of thinking about him.

It can also mean that we start thinking of ourselves as capable of doing things that God can do, and forget how much we need him.  That is the reason Jen Wilkin wrote the book None Like Him – 10 Ways God is Different from Us.
