New Chapter

Derek has started working in Texas. And I am in Oklahoma. Boy it's harder then I thought it would be. Poor Tyler has had his daddy home with him for almost 4 weeks straight. And now he is gone. Last night Tyler took me threw the whole house yelling DADDY DADDY DADDY. It broke my heart. Then  he would not get off the phone with him. I would tell him to say bye and take the phone and he would just cry. I would give the phone back to him and he would just start talking again. Poor poor boy. It's gonna be tough on all of us. After him being done with his schooling and training we thought everything would be great. But it has been the least of that. So I guess we will take it one day at a time. And keep praying for the perfect job at home.

It's Gone!

Tyler is now fully pacifier FREE! And get this it was the most easiest thing to do. We cut it and gave it to him and he hated it. He lost interest in it and gave  it up the first night. I could not believe it. (I highly recommend the cutting the tip of it.)  So that is one more thing crossed off the list. Now we will be working on him sleeping in his own room all night. Then by his birthday potty training. I'm not wanting to rush him to much on the potty thing. Now if we could work on his temper and attitude problems we would be go to go. Lets see other Tyler news. He is now talking up a storm. He has never been much of a chatty one. But here lately that's all he does. It's so cute. He is saying a lot more words. And it is clear. Also after he high fives he now  does knuckles. He is a ball of energy.

Job Less & TX

We are going back on the road or should I say moving to Texas for awhile. Derek is out of a  job. We have prayed and put applications in but nothing has opened up. So it looks like we will be going to Abilene within the next two weeks or so. I have been sick over it. We have thought and talked each tiny option out but nothing else has seemed right. So last night I broke down and started looking at apartments and town homes. I have a list of places and will be making the calls. This is a huge change coming at us and could use all the prayers we can get. We will still have our house in OK. Until we figure out what is next. I was looking at weather and they are already in the 80's. I am wanting to die in more ways then one. Derek is going to be working long hours. Either 6days a week 12hours a day. Or 10 days on 4 off 14 hour days . Both super sorry. So a lot of the time it will just be me and Tyler. I am still praying and believing that the lord has the perfect job for us. But it is just in his timing.

Terrible Two's

Has hit! I have seen it coming but  it hadn't been real bad.  Disciplining was working but now has no effect on him. Well we are in full force now. I am so worn out already and it has only started. I feel so bad because it seems all I do is discipline. Getting onto him 24/7 makes me feel awful.  I have really been trying to keep him busy so he wouldn't have much free time for trouble. Its helping some but not all. In his free time while I was fixing lunch he manage to climb up and get the fish food and dump it all out. Then come show me what he did. Grrr. Pull all the wipes out of the case and rip them into pieces. And get the Kleenex box and rip everyone of those.  Then comes the fit throwing. The worst of all. I really can handle all the little messes. But the fit throwing is the final straw. It's over dumb things like his shoe not going on, the ball not going in the hoop to  me telling him no about something and him getting mad. He has not done it in public and I pray he never does. Otherwise we will be finding the nearest bathroom! I know I must and will get threw this but it isn't gonna be easy.
