7 Quick Takes Friday Volume 3

1. I have been watching my oldest daughter’s friend for the past three weeks. The girls and I have been a great time with our new buddy. Monday, I will also start caring for his two-year old brother.  Now each of my girls will have a playmate.  Please pour me some more coffee!

2. Today, I received a jury duty notice, I called for an extension until after the summer.  Come to found out, I am exempt because I am a stay-at-home Mom.  Score for me!! 

3. Yesterday was day #2 with no pull-ups for my youngest daughter, and no accidents. She is SO proud of herself and I am proud of her too! Score for my Bumblebee!

4.Last night, my oldest daughter read the night-time story to the baby and me.  I am so proud of my big girl, the reader.  Score Ladybug!

5. As of July 1, my husband is now officially Grand Knight for his Knights of Columbus council for this fraternal year.  It was nice knowing you, Rick.  Maybe I’ll see you next summer.  

6.  Ladybug would like to cut her hair.  It is almost at her waist, and with swimming lesson has become quite dry.  I am thinking about donating it to Locks of Love.

7.  My prayer life really needs some help.  I have all of these wonderful ideas, but my days are so full.  I am trying to carve out 20 minutes at mid-day to mediate.  I hate to say this, but I need some type of reminder. Does anyone have a suggestion?

    YAY!!!! good bye Diapers!!! I’m so excited for you!! that’s 20.00 a week saved. 😛
    As for prayers? any time you look up and say “thank you god for allowing me to see the beauty that is pee on the carpet?” it’s a prayer. 😛 Or “Thank you Lord for giving me this day” BAM! you just knocked out another prayers. Prayers don’t have to e long or elequent they just have to be thought.

    A simple thought of our lord is a prayer to Him.Rick and u r doing the work of God and that is a big prayer.

    For me, prayers have to be stolen in five seconds whenever I think of it (usually when kiddos are shrieking and I need patience). I’ve also been praying regularly for a woman with cancer b/c FB keeps reminding me. Any way to take advantage of something like that?

    Have you read “A Mother’s Rule of Life” by Holly Pierlot? Our Catholic Mom’s group is reading it this month and it has a lot of great suggestions for increasing your daily prayer times! I have also learned to pray while working (even though my husband would rather I kneel and focus, it is just not practical!!!). I will pray a rosary while washing dishes, for example. 🙂
