Help Wanted: Grandma

You are going to have to be patient with my whiny postings for the next week 'cause Grandma is leaving for a week. You know what this means -- not only do I have to make all the meals (including breakfast!!!), but I also have to change all the poopy diapers, clean the kitchen, and get the fellowship hall ready for Coffeehouse. Good heavens, I'll have to be a real mom. I don't think I'm ready.

However, after a late night of obsessing, I came up with something to tell Casey in regard to the bullying thing. I told Casey that God makes us the way we look for a reason -- we may figure out the reason now, or we may figure out the reason later, but we look the way we look because it fits into God's plan for our lives. God needs us to look the way we look -- our responsibility is to stay healthy so that we are ready for what God needs us to do. Casey accepted that explanation and seemed to like the idea that God had a purpose for him. So I may be incapable of keeping all the balls in the air at the same time at my house, but it's possible I'm not a complete failure as a mom. This week, anyway. We should revisit this issue next Wednesday, a few hours before Grandma gets back.
