Yay!! Success!! No one yelled or threw food or tried to kill each other. Okay, that’s a lie… the 2 brothers and sister yelled, threw food, and may have appeared to be killing each other. All in all it was a great time!
I really enjoyed having some slight adult conversation while the kids occupied each other. Kim and I chatted while our husbands stuffed their faces with desserts. We may have done that too but that’s beside the point. Then we finally had to get down to business. The issue at hand.
Murph, lately is wanting to act like a teenager girl “that just had her phone taken away.” Direct quote from Justin (Stepdad). It’s definitely accurate. We sat him down and had a nice little heart to heart. Working together pays off. The four of us get to express our concerns to each other and we had a great opportunity for all of us to talk specifically to Murph.
Stepping up, swallowing our pride, being bigger people. I can’t stress enough how taking that first step to actually getting to know one another was the greatest decision we’ve ever made, regarding our family. Josh and I had dinner with our two best friends last night. 🙂 Weird right? Who here still thinks I’m a nut??
