    I am so excited about this. Hoping I can take in as much as I can before our midweek Bible Study at church, where tomorrow I start teaching the 3rd and 4th graders instead of learning in the adult class. Looking forward to it but could always use prayers to make this an amazing year for these kids. Anyways, I posted the first and third comment on my FB page. So excited about the release. May tomorrow evening touch many Moms and may the book touch even more Moms.

  45. Michelle Sanders Brinson Reply

    I so want to win this… I need this book and I could definitely use the mentoring. Oh my goodness… I’ve gone crazy on social media. I use Hootsuite… so I’ve posted as well as scheduled tweets and Facebook posts for all different times throughout the day today. I also posted on Pinterest. Not sure how you’re picking winners or if your entries are based on the number of times shared… but 3 x on FB, 3 x on Twitter, plus Pinterest. Can’t wait until tomorrow!

    What makes me a weary mom is when I forget that GOD is the one in control of my life and not me! I send my husband out as a police officer, yeah, that makes me weary, homeschooling 4 kids with a toddler and infant in tow, that makes me weary. All the cleaning, cooking, child training, that makes me weary too, but giving it all back over to Jesus, only THEN is my burden lifted and I am no longer weary!

    The biggest thing that makes me a weary mom? Trying to do everything with my own strength… once I truly had no option but to trust God because of serious health issues, I realized that I have never really let Him be in the driver’s seat. Learning to let Him lead me everyday with HIS strength!

    What makes me weary? My husbands new job was 10% travel but he’s been gone 70% the last two months. I have two daughters that are preschool and 1st grade. They are adopted from the foster care system and the oldest is battling the physical and emotional aspects of her abuse. Therapy, SPS, lots of emotional drama. I cope by being task oriented and don’t take time to process. When it gets too much I feel like a mountain on my shoulders. I’d be lost without my Lord and Savior.

    My boys are typical boys, who love to rough house & tumble. As they are getting older, they are beginning to learn the quirks of their mom’s personality. They have learned that if they tickle me hard enough, I will squeek when I laugh. So, now they will gang up on me and tickle me to make me squeek infront of their step-dad. It makes me feel very loved that they are learning me & like making me laugh.

    We had to eat a quick supper in the car before one of my girl’s dance class. As we sat in the parking lot, it turned in to a “make your brother dance to get a french fry” party! It was a much needed laugh in our hectic day!! 🙂

    One of the funniest things my son has done was while getting on the elevator for the first time. We were going to the dentist… another first and I was already concerned that he might be scared. I was trying to explain to him that we were going to get on the elevator to go up to the second floor when suddenly he looked at me with such fear and said, “mommy, I don’t want to go in the alligator.” I couldn’t help but laugh… but had to restrain myself so I could calm his fears.

    Where to begin? Tooth paste and fiddlers seem like a topic that is always ripe for creative disasters at our house. I have found lovely art on the sink the cabinet the wall and toilet!

    I used to compare myself to others a lot. I’m learning (slowly) that God created us all differently. My strengths will be different than someone else’s. But that’s what allows us to be the body of Christ and to help each other. Most definitely Christ’s strength can shine through our weakness.

    The day of our house inspection (the one we were selling), I had put my son down for a nap beforehand. A half hour before the inspection I went into his room and he was sitting on his bed and had a ghostly look to him, as my eyes traveled around the room and landed on the changing table I realized he had emptied a container of baby powder! Needless to say I wiped him off and did a quick vacuum job. I actually took a picture first because it caught me as funny.

    My boys are always doing crazy thing to make me feel defeated, but I just laugh and deal with it. I know I will miss it someday. This morning it was dumping all the “Gerber Puffs” on the table and floor!

    Hmmm… too many to recall lol My second son could not get to the bathroom in time while we were outside the apartment playing and he just pulled his pants down right there and used it. I about DIED! Some older ladies were out there and they giggled. I was not giggling lol

    One funny story is when I had finally cleaned off the coffee table, trying to declutter and all that. Turned around and the next thing I know, my little one is dancing on it. How she got up there and not fall, I have no idea. I have kept stuff on the table ever since 🙂

    My boys are now in their 20’s, so this happened many years ago…. When my boys were younger they were out in the front yard, in the driveway, and they decided to start a fire with their magnifying glass. An older woman stopped in front of our driveway in her car and shouted out to the boys, “Does your MOTHER know what you are doing??” (they say she was all huffy) My middle son took matters in his own hands and politely replied… “It’s alright, we’re HOMESCHOOLED!” LOL Oh geesh! Yes, weary mom….

    My oldest boy keeps trying to jump from more stairs until I finally imposed a rule of “only jump from as many steps as you are old”…. This rule came about because he was posed on the 7th step ready to go for it! Fortunately, for this Mama’s heart, he hasn’t realized his latest birthday entitles him to an extra step (5).

    Tell a funny story about something crazy your kids did and how it made you feel? Well, for some reason my 3 year old calls her and everyone else’s belly button a “butthole button” and this past Sunday she was at church talking about how she has a butthole button and sometimes she pokes her daddy in his! Yeah, try explaining that one!
    I was mortified!

    Funny Story: My 2-year-old son found Desitin at a friend’s house one time and smeared it all over his body. I have more, but you only asked for one…this one’s fresh in my mind!

    My boys, 4 & 2, are always on the move! My 4 year old is constantly telling people he is 4 (he just turned 4)…but almost 5, and after 5 he’s 6…after 6, 7…after 7 he’ll be 8…and sometime after that he’ll be 16, and THEN he can drive a car!! This makes me feel 12 years older, LOL!

    This actually happened to my ex-husband, not me. He’d taken our then 3-year-old to Little Gym, and he noticed our son had a big booger in his nose. He went to wipe it, and our boy yelled loudly enough to be heard in the next county, “DADDY! Don’t touch my booger! I want to LICK it!” I laughed so hard I nearly cried when he told me that story.

    My crazy boys are ALWAYS doing something crazy. After doing school lessons the boys went outside to help with chores. I went out back to find one in the loft throwing hay on the cow, one covered in mud from his nose to his toes because he was trying to catch a rabbit, and one eating sand in the sand box. HELP with chores? Uggggggg I <3 them all!!!

    My little one covered himself in Desitin too, Stephanie 🙂 I cried for 2 hours with him while I scrubbed him with every shampoo, dish soap, and cleaning product I could think of. My husband called and said, “Did you try GoJo?” That degreasing hand cleaner that mechanics use? UGGGGGG!!! Worked like a charm!
