3/18/09 Dallyn is so sweet about picking flowers or should i say weeds for me and gives me them with a heart felt, "Here mom I got you some flowers." Well today he asked me where the flowers were that he gave me. Me, "UHHHH I can't remember Dallyn." (I threw them away) :( I didn't want to brake his heart! Dallyn, "did you forget?"Me, changed the subject!
Me, "Dallyn your draining my energy." Dallyn, "Well I'm not going to give it back! I've got you energy mom, haha."
Brandon went to get Dallyn from pre-school, and he had gotten in trouble... again and Brandon wasn't to happy so Dallyn says, "Daddy I can't help it, it's my brain that makes me do bad things." Brandon says, "Dallyn you always have a chocie." Unless of course he's a Schizo, will lets hope not! :)
1/2/09 Brandon "Dallyn, you'll like these, there FROSTED FLAKES." Dallyn "Are they REALLY COLD?"
Me "Dallyn! did you do this??? at that point Broc comes in and says "kdjpar ijt4090a0 dvna9u3e" and thats when Dallyn says "No, I didn't!" Broc "eioadfjliud jaeonaoe vejog" Dallyn, "I did not! He's lying!!" and thats when I am in stock that he understood what Broc said. I think he must have been guilty, what do you think?
"Mom stop saying that word, it freaks me out big time."
So Dallyn has four things that he recently was told if he did he was going to get a spanking if he didn't obey. Well, he did one of them and Brandon was getting ready to spank him. Dallyn says "NO, NO, Dad, Dad, lets talk about this, lets talk about this, please, no, lets talk about this."
Dallyn, "Dad, stinky people need love." Brandon, "Oh really?" Dallyn, "Yeah, my teacher says so."
Me,"Dallyn eat your food or we'll leave to the park with our you." Dallyn, "No way.... you'll leave without me! If you leave without me I'll do naughty things.
For FHE last night we were talking about choosing the right and Brandon said to Dallyn "The Holy Ghost helps you choose the right." and Dallyn then said "Yah, you shouldn't choose the left, cause choosing the left is bad." So funny I love that boy!
Brandon, "What did you have for lunch today?" Dallyn, "Chicken nuggets, goldfish and grapes, you know, the same thing we have everyday." On my defense they don't have that everyday.
Dad we have a peep and a bum and mom she has a bum and another bum. (Well, we all learn sometime!)
So, I want to move to Boise, ID and tell people that. Brandon took Dallyn swimming and some people ask him where we were from and without hesitation he says Boise, ID! I wish! I guess I say it a little much! :)
Dallyn did you bit Broc???? No, the wall did it. (with a totally serious face!)
All mankind is divided into three classes. Those that are IMMOVABLE those that are MOVALE and those that MOVE. -Arabian Proverb
Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger. Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for powers equal to your tasks! Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle, but you shall be the miracle! -Phillips Brooks
How do we know if we are honest, unless our honesty is put to the test?
How do you know if we are filled with virtue, unless there are opportunities to choose a non-virtuous path that we then resist?
How do we know if we can bear up under challenge and trail, unless we have challenge and trail?
And how can we expect to feel and taste the pure sweetness of the gospel of Jesus Christ, meaning specifically the power and peace of the atonement of Jesus Christ, unless there are times in our lives when we desperately need and seek that peace and power?
Our deepest fear is NOT that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be??
You are a Child of God!
Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightening about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
You were born to manifest the glory of God that is within you. It is not just in some of us. It is in everyone!
As we let our own light shine, we consciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. -Nelson Mandella MY FAVORITE QUOTE!
I shall pass this way but once, therefore, any good or kindness that I can show to any human being let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it for I shall not pass this way again
I'm a mother of 4 boys, yes four and if that wasn't crazy enough, they're all under the age of 6! I've been bugging myself to do FHE with these sweet, good, obedient boys of mine, but life just seems to get in the way... so I've decided that if I'm going to do it then I'm going to need a reason. My reason you ask? Well, beside the fact that we are asked to by the Prophet, it's that I need to help me and you realize the reality of this challenging but rewarding commandment. My goal is to post weekly what our family does, step by step, so that all you have to do is be a big fat copy cat! Cause I keep looking for a blog that does it and there's none to be found the way I prefer. So here I go, wish me luck!
