Daddy Woody Was Mr Mum

On The Weekend David Was Mr Mum….

Over the weekend just gone David played Mr Mum….I was off at the Think and Grow Rich Event by Stuart Zadel in Brisbane, helping out behind the scenes.

It was a blast for me, and I really enjoyed the time out.

Not sure how David coped with five very active woody boys.

Lately I have been dealing with two teenagers, and their very active hormones. Combined with our third boy who is 11 year old….and very active over the top behavior is a recipe for disaster.

But this past weekend David got to see first hand what I have had to cope with. ITS no picnic and I have been at my wits end with all of them.

Interesting enough David coped better than I thought he would. I came home to a clean house, fresh flowers, heart sharped biscuits (for valentines Day) and five woody boys still alive 🙂

It was a very good break for me, to charge my batteries.

I sure missed my boys, especially their hugs and kisses, but did not miss their active fast going cheeky behavior.

Its funny what comes out of there mouths….

Here is a conversation (I will try to remember how it went down) with my 8 year old boy – Cameron

Cam “Mum, I am on the lookout for the secret on how to get our family to nice to each other again and act like a close family”.

Me – “Oh and where do you think you will find the Secret”.

Cam – “where is the nearest library to us now. Because they will have my answer in a book”.

Me – “Not sure if there is a library at Glass House Mountains, and will need to look to find where one is”.

Cam – “Caboolture is close enough and they have a library”

Me – “Will there is a book in the book shelf over there, Its Called “The Secret” and it might have what you are looking for?”

So….Cameron jumps up and gets the book off the Book Shelf. He asks me to read it to him after dinner because its actually what he was looking for – “Mum, Mum its called “The Secret”, so it must be a book about my answer.

After Dinner I snuggle down on the lounge with Baby Woody (kyle) in one arm, and Cameron in my other arm.

Kyle only hears the first few pages….Cameron listens until he gets very tired and asks to go to bed. But before he heads of to bed I finish the page I am on……Its where it says “The Law Responds To Your Thoughts, no Matter What They May Be”…..

I ask Cameron if he understands those words….Does he get what it means?

His gorgeous reply “Sure Mum I get it….IF I think about our family getting along it will happen. If I think about our family being nice it will be. It will happen and we will all be happy together”

HOW COOL IS THAT? MY EIGHT YEAR OLD GETS THE SECRET easier than any Adult can understand it, including me 🙂

How to be a kid again? How to have the faith, the acceptance and the belief that what will happen will happen because of thoughts…….

Maybe Daddy Woody Needs To play Mr Mum again!!!

To next time, how was your weekend? Hope you all had a good Valentines Day wherever you are.

  2. Today my baby was born! Frank Luis Gomez came into our lives at 2:10 PM!I was worried at first about what to expect, but I read a few books that I found at this website to help educate myself about newborn babies. I highly reccomend it.
