V is for Victory

Jenny Matlock


Victory.... just a little one, but its still a victory or a small step in the right direction.

After a call from our sitter that our son had been acting out and wasnt himself, I sat down and talked with her. We talked about how things have been stressful around the house and a bit tense and maybe he had picked up on something going on. Out of the blue he started asking, "Mom are you happy?" which is completely strange for a 2 yr old to be asking.

I sat down with my hubby and we had a talk. I told him how I was feeling.
Things have just gone too far and if its affecting my son, we have to do what it takes to change.
And much to my surprized, he was listening.

On our way home yesterday evening, he turns to me and says, "Hun, when we get home, go take a bath with the boy and I'll cook dinner"
(granted it was just taco meat that needed to be cooked, I was more than thrilled with his offer)
Small steps.
As long as they are steps in the right direction.
Good job hun.

Ah, that was sweet of him. Keep talking to him... it helps. Husbands are like puppies, you've got to train them lol I've had my puppy-- I mean husband now for 29 years- and I'm always smacking him with rolled up newspapers lol

Your little guy is so sweet! It's so hard on a couple when children are little and need a lot of care. It does get better as they get older! I hope you have a wonderful week! Angie xo

Wow. Copngratulations on the feature AND the beautiful prize.

I'm not sure what that 'happy' question is about, but our youngest Grandlittle asks that constantly.

Your son is so sweet. You sound like a wonderful Mom!

Thanks for this sweet link for the letter "V".
