Well today hasn't been a very good day. Sick kiddos is never fun. Berklee has a cold, and being the age she is there isn't anything I can do for her.
We had to pick Atleigh up from school today, she has a stomach bug and she's a big ole baby when she's sick. But I don't blame her, so am I :) She has slept all afternoon, we went and got some drinks for her to make her feel better.
And Aidan is feeling better, but still she could have used the rest but her daddy was being a baby about not going to the lake so I sent them two on their way! Since she is feeling better, and these other two are not maybe her being out of the house she wont catch this stomach bug.
Adian did do really great for me today after school though and helped me with some stuff around the house and getting herself packed. Having a sick baby is hard enough, but having another one that has pretty much had to stay in the bathroom is even harder. And then everyone finally went to sleep, so Aidan sat in the living and watched some of her shows and kept to herself so everyone could rest! She's a great helper and sometimes I don't let her know I appreciate it enough and told her today thanks for helping. Because she has really started getting an attitude and not wanting to do anything around the house or help out, and I lose my temper at times. But I have started stopping and realizing what she is doing to help out and letting her know it's helping us all out and we thank her.

30 Days of Excellent in Every Way!

I haven't blogged in over a year. I do most all of my blogging on Facebook like the rest of us I guess. But I have committed myself to doing 30 days excellent in every way. To teach me to appreciate the things my children do more than I show! I have added a link where you can also challenge yourself!

So, I want to invite you to participate with me in 30 Days of Excellent in Every Way in September.

This is what you do, if you want to join me. For the month of September:

1. In your daily prayer time ask God to show you ways in which your kids are excellent. If you are like me, you may have a child that is more difficult than others. This is the child that you need really need to focus on. Pray for that child & ask God to show you how that child is excellent.

2. Keep a journal if you like of what the Lord shows you about your kids. Post it on your blog, if you have a blog visit http://danabailey.blogspot.com/ and you can find the group on facebook or share with her your blog.

3. At least once a day, post an status on facebook(if you are on facebook) about how one of your children was excellent. Don't use their name if you don't want to, especially if they are on face book.

4. Invite your friends. Ask your mom friends to join us. Grab my button if you want to.

5. Use excellent words with your children. Tell them when you catch them doing something wonderful. Compliment them. Build them up with your positive, encouraging words!
