A Rockin' Good Day

Well folks, it's been a rockin' good day over here at the York household.

I won't even go into the the fact that we're currently in the middle of filing an insurance claim (that involves, leaking, mold and rot) on our newly purchased home. Nope, I haven't come to terms with that enough to blog about it yet. Denial is really healthy. I'll continue practicing right now, thankyouverymuch!


My little one is recovering from her first ear infection. She figured out how to open "child safety locks" today (she's 16 months old. C'mon!). And I listened to her scream non-stop for a good hour after I handed her off to her daddy so I could cook dinner. She kept running back to me, screaming and crying, "mommy,mommy,mommy" and "uppee, uppee, uppee."


Hmmm, on the bright side...how do I turn these things into bright sides...? Okay, here goes.


#1) I'm either in total shock, or totally trusting God with the whole house thing because honestly, I'm not freakin out!

#2) Key word is "recovering". I'm thankful Ella is recovering from her ear infection and not in the kind of pain she was in on Sat/Sun.

#3) I have a REALLY smart 16 month old.

#4) She really, really loves me and "uppee" is her super cute way of saying "up please" when she wants to be held.

#5) I bought Ella a potty today!!! She tells us when she goes "pee pee" or "poo poo" and she's hit several other milestones that are signs of readiness so it's time to at least introduce her to it and let her sit on it. Aaaand, bonus, it can totally be used as a stool too!

Not "freaking out" is good. You get alot more sleep that way. I find when you truly trust God to work out each step, life's a whole lot less stressful. With David unemployed for over a year now, I can truly say, "I'm not freaking out". I never would have been able to do this 20 years ago. Leaving it on God is much better! Keep saying this to yourself and when the stress starts to mount, sing you favorite worship chorus. I like "God is so Good".
BTW, have fun with the potty training--summer's a great time to do it--I just put shorts on my kids that were easy to "yank down" quickly and cleaned up puddles for a week and it was pretty well done.
