The funny thing about toddlers is that just when you have the schedule down and you feel like you're finally on firm footing with naps, bedtime, and the favorite foods of the week ... they change. Parents, can I get an amen? *sigh*
This bright eyed, spunky, strong willed yet incredibly compassionate and sweet child of mine has me thrown for a loop right now.
For those of you who have known me for a long time, you know that I'm a recovering control freak. Marriage, a baby, and God have thankfully calmed the type A in me and I've relaxed quite a bit. Or so I thought.
Deep down, I still like to have somewhat of a plan for our everyday. Wake up, breakfast & cartoons, play date or errands, lunch, naptime (which means productive time for this mama), play time or chores, dinner, family time, bed.
Doesn't that sound lovely and well organized? *wink*
The one thing missing from that equation, right now, is naptime. I fear saying this outloud but ... *whispers* ... I think she's almost done with her nap. So, it's time for me to give that control nature up again and figure out a new way to structure our days so I can still accomplish the things I need to do while having a happy and rested toddler.
A mother's, blogger's, and shop owner's work is never done, right? RIGHT?!
The funny thing about life is that just when you think you have it figured out ... it changes. God has been making it clear to us over the last several months that where we are isn't where we're meant to be anymore. He has been quietly (and in some instances, not so quietly) nudging us in a new direction.
That means both the hubs and I need to allow God to guide us to where He wants us to be in terms of career and location. We are focusing on Jeremiah 29:11 a lot these days. I can't tell you much but I can tell you that the next few months are going to be a wild ride of trusting in His plan!
The funniest part about us is that we actually like change.
We just like to have a plan in the midst of it.
