Still on the letter N, and we have nothing to show for it. EJ is going through another stage of not wanting to do a thing except play, and I can’t figure out how to play with him and get in my “agenda.” I know he is learning things as we play, but my controlling self is having a hard time with this stage.
First I have to admit, my boys like to craft differently than me. And I have had to adjust my expectations accordingly in order to be able to craft together and enjoy our time.
I am so stuck in my ways and my own thoughts that I’m having a really hard time adjusting. Can anyone share any ways I can bend on this? I’ve mentioned this in the past, and I thought I was doing better…
Nothing at all can ever separate us from God’s love because of what Christ Jesus our Lord has done. Romans 8:39
On the positive side, a wonderful resource (that I’ll share about next time) gave us a great opening to teach EJ God’s Word. We are sharing verses and other things that we want him to remember at bedtime, right before he goes to sleep. It’s been a wonderful teaching time that’s becoming a part of our routine, and I am amazed at what he can remember after hearing it at bedtime for a couple of nights.
And what a wonderfully sweet time it’s been, too – snuggled together, talking about God’s love and how we can show that to others… I pray that this special time will continue!
