Busy Busy but coming Together

We are still 'living' with my in-laws and I have honestly enjoyed it. There is almost always an adult here to talk to and with which to eat a meal. Cleaning is easier not only because we are living out of a laundry basket but because we are all pitching in.
On the down side! A monster has taken over my son's body. He has been wild, defiant, and mean! I've really been struggling and praying, struggling and praying. I want B-man to grow up with a sweet and kind spirit. I don't want him to be 'THAT' kid in the classroom. You know, the kid that never misses, but also never acts right; which in turn makes one misearable school year for teacher and other students. I'm told he acts nice around others though, so, I'll focus on that. I think this behavior comes from his several things. We are displaced from our home, his Daddy is staying at our house (rather than here) to try and get it ready for us to move in to, and he had some shots a week and a half ago, the same day our house flooded. But, he is also incredibly sweet and loving with me, unfortunately NOT his baby sister. It's not all bad....but I cried when he whacked at his sister with his jacket leaving a little red mark from his zipper and then turning around and doing it to his Grandmother. I don't know how many times a day I say 'LISTEN to ME'. I'm not being unrealistic in my requests of him, but he just doesn't hear me!!! I have faith that God is going to lead me through this storm.
I can't wait to post pictures of our house all redone! I'm super sore from moving all my furniture and painting Little M's room, the kid's bathroom and the master bedroom. But it will be worth it soon.
