Mothers Rule on Mondays.

I have been following a mothers rule of life for about three years now. One thing I have wanted to do is start keeping a journal of things that work well with my rule and things that I know I need to change about it.

My rule this year has gone through many changes. New responsibilities come up regularly and new priorities need to be set.

Over the last 4 weeks of school I have been doing all the things I need to do but I have come to realize how much I rely on Christopher entertaining himself. He is such an independant little boy. If he wasn't in nappies I probably wouldn't see him all day. He would keep himself busy in the backyard and I would go about my own chores inside.

This has been really good but I realize that it needs to change. I should be spending lots of time with Christopher and taking him to do other activities. I think he would like to interact with other children and would also like going to do other things outside the home. With all this in mind I decided today to take Christopher to the park. We went down the slide, on the swings and on the little rocking horse. The rocking horse was a big hit.

He really enjoyed the time alone with me. In less than three years he will be going to school and the oportunities to do these things one on one will be hard to find. I am determined now that a part of my rule needs to include taking Christopher on little outings. I am going to try out the kindy gym on Wednesday and play group around the corner on Friday. On Tuesday and Thursday I will spend some time reading with him or doing some crafty activity.

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
