Today I squatted down to pick something up off the floor and my favorite pair of jeans ripped, right in the crotch area (what a terrible word...but how else do I describe the location of the rip?) I am sure this is due to the fact that the jeans are getting a little tight due to weight gain.

Today, quite early in the morning (4am to be exact) I cried with frustration due to the fact that our 2.5 year old keeps getting out of bed and running to our room. I stopped counting at 10 times out of bed throughout the night. Not to mention the fact that Asher was up twice as well, needing to be rocked to sleep (he is not feeling well again).

Today, again very early in the morning, I "told" my husband he had to deal with Addison as I was "done." When I asked him this morning why he kept getting out of bed he said "cause I want to."

Today I will pull out my Dobson book on Strong Willed Children and read, if my tired brain can take it. I do not function well with no sleep...and Wes is working again today and tomorrow. Sometimes I don't think the money from the overtime shifts are worth me losing my mind.

Today my husband had a pot of coffee ready for me when I awoke to get Aidan ready for school and a much needed little love note.

Today, despite the frustration I feel seemingly more times then not lately, I will rejoice with our Lord over our children who are gifts of the Lord. I will make every effort I can to focus on that and think positively.

Today is a new day.

You are so wise to think of 'today as a new day', and to try and get off on a better start... nights with no sleep are just not fun.
Hope your day was ok, and you had a good weekend!
