They weren't this happy all day. Particularly Jacob. David was out doing some visits with the pastor so it was me and the kids. Jacob had a TOTAL meltdown at dinnertime when he lost his priviledge to have dessert with everybody. It was a special treat - they had just been told they could have an ice cream sandwich. Which was followed by a warning about appropriate talk and that if I heard anymore inappropriate words, they would not have dessert. Which was followed about 2 minutes later with Jacob talking inappropriately again. So no dessert. MAJOR tears. Begging for a second chance. Nope. Gotta learn to obey the FIRST time!
More tears at bathtime. They all got to take a bath in my big tub (all 4 for the first time...no picture because I forgot to bring the camera up with me and couldn't leave Caleb in the tub with the 3 crazy siblings to go get it...) but then Josiah had to get out because of something HE said. Good grief.
I shouldn't fuss so much about them losing self-control....I sure struggle with it enough myself. Had to apologize to Jacob and ask his forgiveness today for losing control myself in how I talked to him. Man, it's hard.
At least they went to bed happy. You can't help but smile at mohawks (well, Callie wasn't happy. Her hair doesn't do a mohawk and of course she wanted one!)
