I am writing this post from a pc and I am am reminded why I like Mac's so much. At the moment, my mac is living at the apple store for a couple of days until they can figure out what is wrong with it. Last night it would not turn on and I almost cried. Today I really realized how attached I am to it and to the internet. (so sad..and maybe a little compulsive!) They are almost sure that my hardrive is not damaged and I am really praying for this. I have not backed up my pictures since April. A couple of weekends ago, my mother in law asked if I had all my pictures backed up. Famous last words. Next time, I will take that as a sign from God that something is about to go wrong.
So, both of my babies have been acting up. The mac will be fixed, but the other one...well...we are seing the beginnings of what I call "toddler-tude". Two hours up to Mansfield and two back, my little sweet angel screamed bloody murder. He is starting to resent being held in place by straps. Keegan has also learned to hit when mad, and to pout on the ground until you get him what he wants. Where do they learn this from??? Not to mention, throwing food on the ground and his sippie cup. Today we were in the apple store, and I had my first occurence with a screaming child. I was the mom that everyone was looking at to shut her kid up. He wanted to get out of his stroller and crawl around, which of course, I would not let him. Straps are not his friend right now. So, while the tech guy was explaining all this mumbo jumbo about my sick mac, I had a red faced toddler in my arms kicking and screaming.
So, tonight I am trying to recoup from my day. The last time I had one of these days was a couple months ago, and I will be so excited if it does not revisit anytime soon. I called Jonathan and said, "Tonight needs to be a leave at 5 p.m. day" and the loving husband that he is did just that. He even offered to take Keegan and drive him around while he looked at sites, but unfortunately Keegan hates the straps.
I am not sure how to enter into the days of seeing the sinful nature creep out of Keegan and it makes me so sad. My sweet one was born with a sinful nature and I can do nothing to stop it. It makes me feel so hopeless and so angry that such a young baby can be corrupted by the very thing that we are corrupted by. I can only pray that one day God will capture His heart and Keegan will seek after Him relentlessly. In the mean time, my responsibilty as a parent is to model for him Jesus in patience and love while teaching him about our loving Savior who can rescue Keegan from himself.
