Converstion with Selah...

Me: Selah, I'm going to take a shower. Rinnah is laying on the floor in the living room. She's fine right now, but if she starts fussing just put her toy over her and turn it on. Okay?
Selah: (while in her room playing with play-doh) Sure, Mom.
Took my shower and got dressed. Walked out to the living room and see Rinnah contently playing with her toy. She saw me and fussed a little, and here comes Selah running out of her room.
Me: Did you give Rinnah her toy?
Selah: Yes, you take a shower and her fus and I wook at her. Her okay now. I pway wif pway-doh now.

Just amazes me that she can listen to those instructions and follow through, but the process of putting a toy away just gets her lost.
Some have called me brave, but I believe in trust leading to bigger and better behavior. And I know she loves her baby sister and would never let her lay there and cry... She is so sweet!

Crazy Kroger Sale!!!

DOubling up to $1 coupons... CRAZINESS!!!!
Kroger was packed and by the time I was able to get up there, many of my items were gone, but I roamed around and found some other great deals. Here's is a general run-down.

Buitoni pasta
Kraft Cheese
True Lemon
Keebler cookies
Degree and Dove deodorant
Tyson box chicken nuggets
Eggo waffles
Suave for kids
Suddenly Salad
Wet ones
Pasta sides

This is two transactions together. My Total OOP was $39.37 for 39 items that's retail was $103.33. I saved a total of $63.96!!!!
Basically, I spent $1.01 per item, which when you figure some of the things I bought, that's pretty good.

Praise God! He has given us a mind to use wisely to glorify Him, and I believe he was glorified and pleased with this stewardship of his money!
