Shine Like Stars

Shine like stars in the universe as we hold out the Word of life (Phil. 2:15)
We're not trying to be rock stars but just shed some light on a sad and lonely world. Stay tuned for how God works through weak and tired, sometimes really cranky vessels.

Mommy's Naptime Barber Shop

Nathan is ridiculously opposed to grooming. He hates getting his nails clipped and completely freaks out when I cut his hair. The last night I cut his hair I really thought I was going to get a call from CPS. I brought the clippers outside and tried to convince him it'd be fun to get a haircut while he sat on his bike while eating sucker (I'm telling you, I've tried every kind of bribery out there.) I ended up having to pin him between my legs and hold his head with one hand while, cutting his hair with the other. All the while he's screaming, crying, almost hyperventaliting. Caleb meanwhile is trying to convince him that it's not bad and that it doesn't hurt. When trying to talk to him didn't work Caleb started singing to him, to comfort him. He was unsuccessful, but he made me laugh which took the edge off my frustration with Nathan:)

So.....I'm trying a new thing....cut it while he's sleeping.

He woke up before I could do the back, hopefully he'll let me cut some tonight:)


  1. THAT is seriously funny. Whatever it takes I say! Whatever it takes! :)

  2. an update.....still no haircut tonight. he looks a little crazy from behind. but he's so stinking cute it's alright.

  3. I always knew you were crazy, but I guess I never knew how crazy. Keep us updated - I want to see the final outcome. (By the way - I'm sure you've tried, but Trevor likes to watch a movie while I cut his nails & hair).

  4. WOW! This is super crazy. I knew nothing about this. Just WOW!
