I just saw this today. Ivan is so precious and so special. He is just going to be challenged in controlling those impulses. I think that happens best when he sees and understands the results of what he does. I will be praying for him while he adjusts to his new schedule. He will come into contact with more kids and potential conflict now, and I pray that God will shape his reactions. thanks for sharing this!

Love these pictures! I can't believe he is going to kindergarten. He has grown so much this year, and I miss the baby Ivan! Oh well, I like this one too.

Did I ever tell you about the time that a potty training Gabriel peed on the lettuce in my cart at the grocery store?

Grandma - I find Ivan so completely adorable. He can melt my heart so easily and turn around and break my heart the next moment. I can't wait to see what God does with my sincere little Ivan.

I am so glad Pastor Davis was able to relieve some of your dismay and mortification! Ivan has spunk and lots of personality, so he will never be perfect by your meter! They are all such delightful individuals!

Conversation between our very bald (he shaves his head) senior pastor, and my son, 8, shortly after my husband shaved his head NEARLY all the way bald:

Pastor: What do you think about your dad's hair? He should shave it all the way off!

My son: No Way!

Pastor: Why not?

My son: Because it looks STUPID!

Seriously, Mary... I feel your pain.

Did I ever tell you about the time Jody Nelson threw a banana nana (CRAP, I always screw up the spelling!) so hard at my head it dented the wall behind me? I was making fun of his incessant hiccups from the living room, and from the kitchen suddenly appeared a high velocity yellow fruit. It narrowly missed me and exploded on the wall behind me. Jody doesn't like the hiccups, and I never again will make sport of him should he have them. Moe deserved the caterpillar.

Amy - LOL, yes, Galen has probably thrown a few bananas, or at least left a few peels lying around. I felt so fortunate that he told it to a small group of teachers first and not to the entire congregation...which could still happen...but I'll feel better about it now.

Um, Pastor Davis raised Galen. I've met Galen. He's a great kid but I'm sure he's thrown some bananas in his lifetime.

I understand the embarrassment but it makes for a great story...which is why Pastor Davis told it :)

Rachel - I have a hard time with that truth sometimes. I really hate it when people say, "boys will be boys." I agree with that statement, but when they say it, what they're really saying is "boys will be wild animals." That is what I despise. I want them to be boys and Ivan especially has a wonderfully strong will that is an asset for a man of God, but it has to be tempered and they HAVE to be taught to be gentlemen. I insist. :)

Don't be embarrassed-he's just a little boy...don't you just love that blazing truth. At four years old-throwing a banana at the pastor when he's playing with him isn't that bad. Now, if he was a teenager and threw it just for kicks...well-you might have a problem! You guys are great parents!! If I could control the behavior of my boys...they'd be a lot less crazy and toys would automatically be put away as soon as they were played with. This is one of those stories Ivan will love to hear you tell about him!!

Mary, let me tell you. I love shaggy curly hair. I have an awesome picture of Owen from when he was 2 or 3 and had the shag. It adds character, I think. Anyway, good job on your part for letting the boy try a new style. He looks like a pretty cool kid!

Amber - Yes, I laughed...not in a mocking way...but I couldn't help but chuckle.

Kem - I did assure him that I don't have a any particular trouble refraining from eating my boogers. Ice-cream is my weakness.

Grandma - I figured you'd have more fun with it if I sent it to your work address. :)

Mia - That is TOO funny. We'll have to compile a book of booger stories someday. You can edit to fulfill your need for "much good grammar."

Mindy - So glad you checked in. I keep up with Christy's blog and was delighted to hear about little Nolan coming to join the family. I am sure that with all the creativity and cleverness in his genetics he'll be the source of many humorous conversations.

Hey Mary! Christy sent me a link to Ivan's blog and said that I just had to read the latest post. Needless to say, I laughed out loud and almost sprayed my cereal milk through my nose! I can't wait to have these types of conversations with baby Nolan in a few years. :)

That is too funny!! When Libby was younger she use to eat her boogers too... One day she came to me with a gross brownish booger on her finger and wanted me to take care of it. I asked her (with sarcasm, of course) why she just didn't eat it since she was always eating them! She looked at me very seriously and said "I only eat the green ones" Aaahhh so many booger stories, so little time!:)

As a middle child myself, this was good to read and think about. Obviously I was potty trained a long time ago, but the lesson you are talking about is good at any age.

Mary, I LOVE the creative parenting going on here! What a great idea and what a great mommy you are to so diligently seek out his own unique personal motivations... to search for what makes him "tick". I pray it works; I know this has been stressful for you and hope that when it comes time for Aron to use the toilet independently, that it will be a BREEZE. You deserve a break after this!

yay Ivan! Love the puzzle picture- you know you'll have to get one with Aron when he's old enough, now, or he'll wonder why no one celebrated his first puzzle! You wrote it all out so well; I can picture each phrase and intonation. Terribly sweet.

What a beautiful story (I know, you're saying "Beautiful?! You know I wrote about potty training, right?") But, I love how it showcases how we should be consulting with the Lord about parenting before we reach the pulling-out-hair point. I totally needed that message today.

Cheryl [Visitor]
What a sweetheart. I can identify with Ivan. I hated spankings, not b/c of the pain, but how awful I felt. I still very vividly remember one particular "talking to" and consequent spanking. I guess that's the positive angle. He'll remember, which will hopefully result in lack of repetition.
