Being on break has its disadvantages. Yes, I like being able to sleep in and not rush around in the morning, but I am so tired of my kids non-stop bickering. Of course, it does nto help that my oldest is moody and unstable. But today we all got a much needed break. Our neighbor asked McKenzie over to help with her three little boys under the age of five. And for some reason Kenz is able to keep it together for other people and loves working and playing with younger kids. It was a much needed break for her as well as for us. The rest of us got to spend the day shopping, running errands, and going out for dinner. Kenz was there all day and even when I checked on her she was still doing good and the mom says she was great help. I am glad that she could have a positive day where she felt helpful and good about herself. I just wish she could have the same here at home too. But the rest of us had peace and fun today. I hate to admit this but I was so glad for a break from her. She is exhausting mentally. And now she is home and doing well. She is in a very good and up mood. I think it is because of the break as well as the fact she felt good about helping others. She loves to be the boss and in control of littler kids. And of course other kids besides her own siblings look up to her and that makes her feel soooo good. As her mom, I am happy that she had a day of feeling good inside. I am also thankful for a peaceful day for myself and the rest of our family. God continues to take care of us in unique and surprising ways. Thank you, Lord.
