If that's how you feel when you survey the growing collection of toys in your home, then you may find today's post helpful! Prayers for Grown-Up Kids. What is it about praying for your kids that you swing from wildly ambitious hopes to woefully mundane fears, never sticking to one or the other?

Prayers for Grown-Up Kids

At least that’s what happens to me. My two boys are great. Both in their 20s, they are following fabulously different paths, one in a creative business environment the other on a rich spiritual journey, and in my head I can see the two paths cross in an explosion of talent and wisdom. I’m flattered when they come to me, their old man, for any shred of advice. I also realize that being a dad of a 20-something means listening. Here’s a prayer for the parent of a grown-up child: Please let me listen, Lord, and know when I should step in to help, and when I should let go and let you do the helping. Alas, I want to micro-manage at all times. I waffle between trusting God and wishing to be God and making it all happen for them, with a wave of my wrist, a magic wand and a prayer, transform their lives.

They aren’t perfect…but I do get at least complete sentences…and some have lead to interesting conversations…and hilarious answers…and a few insights into how my kids think and feel about their time at school. #1. . #2. . #3. . #4. . #5. . #6. . #7. . #8. . #9. . #10. Watching These Babies Swimming Underwater Will Soothe Your Soul. Relax Bottle/Time Out Timer.

Sooooo… I have a three-year-old little girl who is full of drama.

Relax Bottle/Time Out Timer

Probably not the only one in history, but one of my current dilemmas. When time out time comes for bad behaviour I find myself with a little girl on the bottom step screaming, kicking walls and not able to even calm down enough to learn her lesson. This was getting worse and worse until I told my husband, “there has to be a better way, I’m going to research this.” So I went online and read other mom’s advice, dr’s advice, psychologist’s advice, etc. Nothing was really working. So I found a water bottle (Smart water was the brand) that was totally smooth and not too big around for little hands to hold. I removed the label with goo gone (it was very sticky under that label) Next I filled each bottle with about 3/4 (* edit 5-3-12, I used hot water so that the glue “melted” better… room temp or cold will cause it to stay separate) water, an entire bottle of glitter glue and a small tube of ultra fine glitter.
