M&M Mini's

Here is a lesson I learned, just last night. I will never, ever again, buy my children those little cylindrical thingies of mini m&m's. Last night each of the little children got their own tube of them- it was sort of a consolation prize for the fact that Daddy had taken all the older brothers and some cousins to the movie theater for the evening.
At first, the littles were thrilled with their mini M&M's. They were delighted opening and closing the little plastic top, pouring them out in their hands, and spillng them across the floor. At the end of the night, I closed the cap on each of their tube's and put them all safely in my diaper bag.
When I woke up this morning and came out to the kitchen- M&M chaos. Isaiah, Alexandria, Sydney and Bree were all up and had rummaged through the diaper bag and retrieved all the tubes of M&M's. Some kids had eaten more than others the previous night and so were upset when they didn't have as many this morning. Some kids solved that little issue by eating some of their sibling's candy. Some just spilled everywhere, and someone shoved a handful into Mia's mouth. I'm still picking them up off the carpet.
Never again. Next time, Daddy takes everyone to the movies. Everyone.

No good deed goes unpunished! Such is the life of a mom!
Praying right now.
Psalms 9:9-10 The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.

Know that I'm continuing to pray!
Psalms 57:1-2 Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast. I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.
