The boys are in bed thus ending Day 2 of very tough parenting. I'm exhausted! This isn't the first time I've written about a challenging day but it seems to come in spurts. Even at our delightful play date with Catherine and her kids, both of my boys were quite disobedient at times. They have willfully defied us, been extremely unkind to one another, and completely ignored the basic rules that they have known for quite awhile. I'm not sure I can take another day of it. I'm praying for rest and renewed patience. As we prayed with the boys this evening before bed, we prayed for obedience to us and kindness towards one another.
Tomorrow is a new day...I'm so glad.
