3 Things I’ve Learned From My Daughter Taking Swim Lessons

When my kids play sports, I tend to learn a lot about myself.The good, the bad and my inconsistencies.My youngest has been swimming now for a little over a year and the first thing I learned about myself when she began swimming…
1.An old dog doesn’t want to learn new tricks.

My sweet mother attempted to give me swim lessons at our local YMCA when I was a little girl.After the first day of lessons and a horrifying water going up my nostrils experience, I quit!Stick a fork in me because this shriveled up girl was DONE!I told my daughter about my life shaking experience and she’s convinced that I should either take swim lesson or she would teach me herself.We’re all familiar with the saying, “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” Well, this old dog doesn’t want to learn new tricks!I was done the day I took one leap out of that pool to exit and I’m still done today.

2.I have helicopter mom tendencies.

Really don’t think there’s any explaining with this one.If you’re not helicoptermomish…your kids are the one’s I see running around the grocery store without supervision 😉

3.Don’t beat myself up over what I didn’t do with my older kids.
It’s easy to get stuck in the regret of what I didn’t allow my older kids to learn. What’s done is done and what they were able to learn and participate in, was sufficient. Next.

Things My Husband Say All The Time

We all have strange, weird, unusual, only we can say it, sayings.  Like when I was younger my mother would always say,

We’ll cross that bridge when we get to it.

Which meant, I don’t feel like talking about that now and when we’re about to cross that bridge, I’m going to say it again.

Well, there’s a whole bunch of sayings my husband says and I don’t think he’ll ever stop saying them.  Ever!  He’s guaranteed to say one of these sayings per day if not, all in a day.

Here we go

Twos and fews

Which means this or that.

Peace and Hair grease

If you don’t take nothing else, take it easy.

Take your time going, but hurry back.

This one I despise because he says it whenever I leave the house.

Ain’t nothing slick to a can of oil.

It’s like pissing in the wind, it’s all on you.

Yes, he says that.

Chilling like a villain trying to touch the ceiling.

A whole bunch of nothing.

in response to someone asking what’s going on.

The one that tops everyone of these is said on a daily basis….

Sounds like a plan.

Does you spouse have any favorite sayings?

Scripture of The Week: Proverbs 21:9 – Are you a quarrelsome wife?

Lord, the man you gave me made me do it….. is what I’d love to say after trying to make my argument with my husband.  The past few weeks I’ve been working on zipping my lips.  I really need help with zipping my lips and how to respond non argumentative. The main reason meditating and breathing God’s word is a must in my life.

 

Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife.

 

proverbs 21 9

 

Do you have trouble zipping your lips or responding appropriately to your spouse?  Let’s work on this together and see the Lord work in our mind’s, heart’s and mouth’s.

What’s in Our Picnic Basket #LoveandMarriage

My husband and I had it all planned out. Drop the kids off at Vacation Bible School and head over to the park for a little quality time together for a picnic. As soon as we dropped the kids off it began to pour down raining. This  lead us to putting our creative skills to work.   Head home and enjoy our picnic on the Living Room floor.

We were determined to have a picnic. LOL
