No not a night on the town for the hubs and me but for Ben and Katy.
It is still hard for me to believe that Ben is out networking. This boy was one of the shyest children ever.Although he was shy, he was strong willed and I just about wore out a copy of James Dobson's book, The Strong Willed Child!! I use Ben as an example at my MOPs group, that you will survive a strong willed child and that character trait stands them in good stead if channeled properly. I am so proud of Ben and the man he has become.
Speaking of Strong Willed Children, I better see if I can find a copy of that book for this week. Ben's youngest son, Elliott, is coming to spend the week with us. Daddy is out of town on a business trip so Katy asked if I could take Elliott to make it a bit easier on her this week. As she put it in her text to me yesterday, Gird your Loins. My parents always used the phrase, " You are paying for your raising." Well Ben is paying for his as he got a child that is very similar to him as a child. Don't get me wrong, Elliott can be the sweetest of children as long as things are going his way! And it is easier to let them go his way, believe me. I did learn a lesson about picking my battles with his daddy so I will try to remember that this week as well. Prayers appreciated!!
