Lately I have been thinking a lot about patience. There is one thing I know about an area that I struggle in is patience. I am the most impatient person. I hate being the last know anything. I hate finding this out over facebook. Tonight while doing my church calling (Ward News Editor) I was researching some topics as I always do and found this amazing quote. I said to Kurt when he came home from work and showed him the quote I said to him that its amazing what comes to you while Matilda is screaming at you because she has her nose running and coughing so much. I felt it was like a bit of inspiration just for me.

Continue in Patience

By President Dieter F. Uchtdorf Second Counselor in the First Presidency

Waiting can be hard. Children know it, and so do adults. We live in a world offering fast food, instant messaging, on-demand movies, and immediate answers to the most trivial or profound questions. We don’t like to wait. Some even feel their blood pressure rise when their line at the grocery store moves slower than those around them. Patience—the ability to put our desires on hold for a time—is a precious and rare virtue. We want what we want, and we want it now. Therefore, the very idea of patience may seem unpleasant and, at times, bitter. Nevertheless, without patience, we cannot please God; we cannot become perfect. Indeed, patience is a purifying process that refines understanding, deepens happiness, focuses action, and offers hope for peace. As parents, we know how unwise it would be to indulge our children’s every desire. But children are not the only ones who spoil when showered with immediate gratification. Our Heavenly Father knows what good parents come to understand over time: if children are ever going to mature and reach their potential, they must learn to wait.

Since Christmas

Here is what we have been up to since Christmas:

Announced we are expecting our third baby:

Found out in early October we are expecting our third little bub. Baby will be due at the end of June. We were excited and shocked. Later last week we went for our 20 week scan and baby had its legs crossed and we were unable to see what the sex was. So we are waiting to June when the baby is born to find out what we are having.


Matilda is doing really well. She started walking over the Christmas break and is talking more and more. She likes lots of attention although can be quite a pain because she is teething.


Spencer is getting bigger, he is getting better with his speech. He is still enrolled in 2 days of daycare a week. Which some days he likes other days he screams. He loves playing the wii and playing on my new phone. He is out of nursery now and is a big primary boy and is starting to get use to his new routine.

Still studying hard at JMC. Almost finished his first year and is process of filling out his forms for the 2nd year. Other than that working as a causal at coles and hating it.


Nothing is really new for me... Expect for the ever growing stomach and house cleaning. Plus chasing after 2 kids and Kurt.
