"Not flesh of my flesh, Nor bone of my bone, But still miraculously my own. Never forget for a single minute,
You didn't grow under my heart - but in it"

Thats what I have at my house, leeches! We have lived here a week and 3 days ago the kids met some neighborhood kids and they have not left our house! They go to school and go home to sleep but other than that they are here. They want to pee here and eat here and play here and watch tv here and not help clean up here. I dont think I like this!

I love my new house, minus the ants all over my kitchen and the lack of my own furniture and stuff around. So I dont want my nice new house mucked up and certainly not by someone elses child. They want drinks, they want fed, they want a lot of things. I am not use to this. I have my kids trained, you dont ask for things. Right or not its my way of bringing them up. The one has asserted herself the alpha dog too and she talks and talks and talks. She ask me for permission for Sarie to come in to pee, seriously? She is standing in my doorway with Sarie behind her and says "Sarie has to go to the bathroom can she come in, because you said we werent allowed to come in so I wanted to make sure I ask before she just came in...." Are you serious? My kids do not have to stay outside when they have to pee especially a 4 yr old who cant hold it long at all.

I have never had to deal with this before so I want to make sure Im not taken advantage of. I also want to make sure that my house stays nice because I am sure they are not going to pay to fix anything.

Anyways I am feeling crappy lately. We still dont have our stuff out of storage an no real date on when that will happen. We only have a livingroom set, silverware, one pot and 2 towels. So it feels like a vacation house not our home. I am ready to have a home and not sleep on the floor anymore.

Could you just pray for us. There are a few needs right now and I would just appreciate it so much. Thank you.

Oh and before I forget you can check out our family blog for more updates on the house and pictures by clicking here.

  1. LOL Oh, I remember those days! My rules were: Neighbor kids eat at their own house. If they were playing outside I would bring out a pitcher of water periodically to make sure everyone is drinking. Kids go home at mealtimes. My house was neighbor-free from noon to about 2:00 (or whatever hours Angela was napping!) But I DID like the kids playing in my yard because I knew what was going on. On preferred that to them going to someone else's house. And, it's ok to sit the neighbor kids down and go over some of the ground rules with them. They're excited to have new playmates! Also, there is nothing wrong with saying "If you play here in the morning, then not in the afternoon" or vice versa. Too much time together eventually damages the relationship anyway.

  2. Thank you. I will do this. I want them to play together and have friends but not at the expense of family time or my patience. lol. I need to set rules and then not feel so bad when I tell them no. I also prefer them playing at my house. I just refuse to be a free daycare service for the neighborhood.
