First on today’s agenda – did you win a Spatula Runners prize??? – go check out the vlogs announcing the winners!
Second, I know a lot of you have expressed interest in doing the Arms and Abs Aprilwith me so I’ve decided to upload videos demonstrating each move to my facebook page, for anyone that cares to follow along. It’ll be good for anyone that doesn’t know what a specific move is or how to do it.
*please note I am not that strong or fit yet, so it’s basically like watching yourself in the mirror*
I’m off tonight so I think I may try to get on my bike and go for a ride I actually may even do my 13 miles for Jess’ JellyBean Race I’m pretty excited, as it’s been far too long since I was allowed to bike. I’m looking forward to some cross-training and building my cardio back up.
Anyway, what I really want to talk to you guys about is Logan. He’s been having a difficult time lately…..
He says there’s a man that’s in his room – which we have been dealing with lightly. We asked him if the man leaves if he asks him to go away and Logan said yes, so we’ve been telling him to just ask him to “go away” so far this has been working.
Now it’s got to the point where Colin or I will hear him saying “go away, go away” in his room when he’s alone. At least we’re empowering him.
I know children and monsters is such a common thing but we don’t want to do the whole “what is real for you isn’t real” we don’t prod him about it either. We just support him and give him “monster slaying” tools.
He even made his own bed in the family room so the “monster wouldn’t get him”
For those of you that haven’t been reading me long, I am actually terrified of spirits, monsters and creeping things that I’ve seen in scary movies so this has been a REAL test for my as a mother. I’ve got to be strong and not scared, or else I’ll pass it on over to Logan.
1. are you in for the April challenge?
remember to follow up on facebook for videos and support!
2. if you have kids – how did you deal with this phase??
I also haven’t discussed it much on the blog but my father has passed, so sometimes I wonder if maybe he’s around? Is that crazy to think?
3. are you afraid of silly things like me??
I am seriously still afraid of the dark, I’ll be 30 this year folks!
