What A Way to Wake Up!

This morning I woke up to my dear husband telling me that JM our 20 month old son had taken his diaper off in his bed and then pooped everywhere. I cried. Literally rolled over and cried. We got the mess cleaned up. And boy was it a mess. I was crying, JM was crying. It was not pretty. Later I found a couple verses that I really needed this morning.
Psalm 29:11~ "The Lord gives his people strength, The Lord blesses them with peace."
Psalm 43:5~ "Why am I so discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise Him again- my Savior and my God!"
Then I checked outMama Lily on her blog this morning and she made me cry as I thanked God for my little finger prints and my sometimes big messes, even if the are poopy occasionally. Thank you God!! My sisters are the best.

ah. sorry you had such a rough morning. ugh. I'm glad you were able to find your "happy heart" though!

pee and poo -- looks like we're in it for the long haul!

Yep - some mornings are just harder than others. Especially when dirty diapers are involved. :-) But it sounds like you have great perspective and some wonderful encouragers, too.

BTDT, I have some poopy diaper stories I don't even want to go near, LOL! It's not so easy sometimes.

But all the hugs in the end make up for a bad day.

After a night of LITERALLY no sleep I read your post - and cried when I read your verses. Thank you. I do not have little babies but I was up all night with terrorists (read: preschoolers) who wanted to torture me. Check out my blog for the whole story.

That part does get better. I promise. :) I think all three of mine did that, at least once. I remember using ducttape to keep the diaper on my most Houdini child (it didn't work.)
