Troy's Mother.

My mother in law is staying with us for Thanksgiving. She just arrived this morning. This must be why the sudden push to do everything exactly the way Troy wants.

When she arrived, she told me what a terrible job I was doing as a mother because I let my children go to private school. When I gently told her that it was Troy's decision, and that I was against it, she turned the tables on me! Suddenly private school was the best thing ever and I should be ashamed of myself for not wanting to integrate my children in with other children in a Godly environment.

Troy did see some sense and brought home some Purex so I could wash my clothes. When my mother in law saw it, she freaked out about having two kinds of laundry detergent. When I explained that I was allergic to Gain, she told me that I needed to learn how to make sacrifices for my family.

She heard I was having twins and asked what kind of formula I was buying them. When I said I was breast feeding, she said that was not healthy and that I needed to stop being so selfish and  let other people feed them. She also said that my breasts would only make enough milk for one baby, not two, and I would soon find out that one of the babies would die if I tried breastfeeding them both.

Nothing I do is good enough for her, and it is tiring.

The Land Before Time

Today while browsing a thrift store, I found an old favorite movie of mine: The Land Before Time. I have fond memories of watching that movie. I thought back to the plot, and just remember some kid dinosaurs having fun, being kids, getting into and out of trouble, so I went ahead and I bought it thinking the girls would love it.

When I got home, I popped the tape into the VCR, and sat down with Baileigh to watch it. The first words that were spoken were "Millions of years ago" and began to explain that long before any animals or any humans, dinosaurs were around, and that the earth was changing rapidly. I immediately took the tape out of the VCR and hid it on a shelf. I will not have any movies teaching my children about evolution.

I will probably take the movie back tomorrow and demand my money back. I only paid fifty cents for it, but its the principle of the thing!

And Now My Music

My husband has taken away my music, one of the few joys I have in life. He says anything with a one TWO three FOUR beat is bad, and I must only listen to ONE two THREE four beats. I'm not entirely sure he understands the concept of that, considering some of the music he left in and some of the music he threw away. I really think he just wants me to stop listening to music all together. Because of this, I also cannot participate in choir or even go to church lest I hear something with the wrong beat.

On another note, I am on Twitter. https://twitter.com/AshleighZedicy

And you all complained that my facebook was down, so I went in and fixed it.

Try that, see if that works better.


Love to you all

How Long Is Long Enough?

How long should your hair be? Should it be past your shoulder blades? Is shoulder length hair long enough to be considered "long"?

Baileigh has asked if I would cut her hair. It is currently to her waist. She is always getting it tangled, which isn't her fault she is only a child. I can't envision cutting it all the way off, or a cute chin length bob. I need it to be long enough to still be pleasing to the Lord.

Maybe I should just braid it daily and pin it to the top of her head when she is playing?

Submission And Trust

This, ladies, is why you need to submit as much as you can to your husbands.

My husband complained that I have not been properly submitting to his Authority, so things will soon be changing.

I suppose this has something to do with last week when he told me to buy the Gain liquid detergent, and instead I bought the Purex powder because I am allergic to Gain.

My blog is the only thing I am allowed to have to myself, and even then, my husband will keep a strict eye on it to make sure I am not speaking evil towards him behind his back.

That must have something to do with me telling a friend of mine about the Gain/Purex debate.

I am not to leave the house unless he says so. I am not allowed to make any dinner he does not tell me to make. I am not allowed to buy any food he doesn't pre approve. I am not allowed to do anything except feed and change babies without his permission. I even had to ask for permission to type up a blog post on submission.

He says when Matthew gets older, I am supposed to submit to my own child. He thinks that the age of three will work. Troy trumps Matthew, but Matthew trumps me.

I am telling you all of this so you can see what can happen if you try to make one decision on your own when your husband has told you to do something else.

From now on, we use Gain. And I am not allowed to scratch.

Children

Children these days are troubled miscreants... through no fault of their own! Their parents just don't know how to properly raise a child.

Here's what I believe. The world today teaches kids that it is okay to sin. The first thing we do is teach that addiction is a good thing. I have heard marijuana called a gateway drug, but there's one that comes before that, and we introduce it to our own children... Caffeine. You probably think I am crazy, but caffeine is a drug. Itseasily addictive, and we give our children soda and coffee from a very young age. And if we don't, we drink it ourselves which tells children "This is okay to drink when I am bigger." So they start drinking it later because"Mommy and Daddy drink it." Then, we are shocked when our children turn to methamphetamines.

Secondly we promote sexual promiscuity. We get pregnant out of wedlock and wind up with deadbeat baby daddies. Our children grow up thinking this is normal, so the cycle repeats.

We teach stealing is right. How many times have you used a wireless internet connection without your neighbors knowledge? Or used one at a restaurant without even buying a drink? Walked out of the store with something you forgot to pay for in your cart? That is stealing.

It is our fault when our kids turn out bad. So think before you act. Your children are watching you.

Well, now that THAT pesky business is sorted out...

My choir director told me that I was welcome to stay in the choir if that is what I wanted. He said that if I didn't want to sing Latin, I didn't have to! He said "Just stand there and look pretty." So I think I may do that!

Yes, the songs won't be as wonderful without my voice behind it, but I will be standing by my convictions while still getting to do something I love.

Well...

First lets clear something up. Elizabeth and her small family do not live in a tent behind my house. Its just when you are used to the finer things in life, and live in a large house, a small two bedroom guest house is like a tent. I certainly couldn't live in a two bedroom house, it makes me as claustrophobic as a tent does. Just thinking about it makes my throat tighten up!

Speaking of Elizabeth, I saw her horrible post about wanting to buy my baby. So I have given her three days to find a new home.

Why in the world would someone want to buy another persons child!? I can't believe she would even SUGGEST such a thing!

I am crying because my friend wants to buy my baby. How cruel this world is.

Sundays

Sundays are such wonderful days.

Today, I bent down to meet my Father. He met me at the gate and led me to His side. He showed me a world of beauty. A world of peace and love. A world where we can all really be free.

I believe I saw Heaven today.

I did not sing with the choir today. The music minister simply would not budge when I told him I would leave if he did not cut the Latin out. I won't sing with them for a while. He will want me back next week.

Love,

Ashleigh

Choir

My church has a lovely choir, to which I am an Alto. I am the star Alto, I know the music the best, and I sing the best. I am a very strong Alto. I'm so strong my director asks me to tone it down... but in all seriousness, you can't tone down a voice as strong as mine.

Anyway, today in practice, they gave us the music for the Christmas concert. We are singing a LATIN song! Whatever for!? I can't believe that! We always sing English! Now our director wants us to learn a new language? Latin is a dead language, why are we learning this!?

MY family only speaks English. I will be having a chat with the director today about this. If he wants his star Alto, he is going to have to give up the Latin!

Love,

Ashleigh

An Announcement

With all of the comments I have been receiving, I thought I would make a statement. I went to bed last night, and woke to 74 new comments waiting for me.

I personally had no intention of my wedding post catching the eyes of all of the Gossip magazines. I chose not to address this at first, but I am being accused of gossip, slander, and saying things I never said.

I told about my account of the wedding. What Mary B. and others have said I will not confirm or deny because it is not my business what married couples do. Even if it IS in God's Holy house. Personally, I feel its not inappropriate as long as no one but the Lord sees you, so please lock the door. Sex was made by God for Man and Wife... so what could possibly be more glorifying to Him than to partake in what the Lord has made for you in His house?

That being said, what Ben and Jessa do as a couple is their business, not mine, not the gossip magazines, not anyones but the Lord's and their own.

By telling you what I saw at the wedding, I meant no harm. I meant no gossip, and I certainly did not expect the many magazines that have ran with it to find it.

I hope you all have a wonderful life, and instead of trash talking this young couple, you look inside you and seek The Lord.

Love,

Ashleigh


Edit: I am removing Mary B.'s comment. I did not before because I do not believe in censoring others. I did not realize that by allowing it to remain on my page that I was perpetuating a rumor and allowing it to escalate to the level that it did.

Anyone who calls me Mary B. will have their comments deleted promptly. Mary has outed herself as a farce, and I am NOT Mary, so please stop calling me Mary. I am Ashleigh.

To the new couple: I am sorry that your personal life has been plastered all over the internet in such a disturbing manner. If I could take it back, I would. It was very crude of Mary B. to post such horrid things on a public forum, and it was wrong of me to allow it to stay up.

Jesus Loves You

Jesus loves you
you must know
For the bible says its true
Everyone belongs to Him
You are weak but He is strong
Yes Jesus loves you
The Bible says its true.

Love,

Ashleigh

Abortion!

It is a cause very near and dear to my heart.

Please do not abort your babies! They are precious gifts from God! LOVE on them! Be there for them! If you cannot keep them, maybe find a relative or a friend who would love to adopt your baby and you can be aunty to them. Maybe adopt them out to a family in need of a child. Please do not abort your babies. They are such precious gifts from God.

Love,

Ashleigh

My Daughter Wants An iPhone

Apparently, all of the other nine and ten year olds in Nataleigh's class have iPhones, so now she wants one. I tried to explain to her that she is far too young, and she kept pushing. Then I tried to tell her that materialism is not a pretty thing. That made her mad. I told her that she does not need an iPhone, and she proceeded to insist that she did because everyone in school was going to make fun of her otherwise.

Where did this diva child come from? Why is my lovely, normally compliant daughter acting out like this? Is Christian school really doing this to her?

I guess I could always do like my parents did... if you want it bad enough, you can work for it!

Love,

Ashleigh

The Twins

Kymberleigh Dayton and Nathan are due late January/early February. I honestly cannot wait to see the smiling faces of my beautiful baby twins. I enjoy every minute of being pregnant with my sweet ones. My midwife says everything is going smooth, and I should be able to birth at home. My husband is okay with this as long as I have my midwife with me. He cross checked her himself, and he decided she is okay because she told him that if any problems arose, she would have me transported to the hospital. Nothing will happen though, I am faithful that I can deliver my babies at home. It will be bliss.

Love,

Ashleigh

Weddings and such

Well, Saturday I went to the Duggar/Seewald wedding. It was so beautiful. I was humbled by it all.

The bride looked beautiful in her stunning palest of pink gown, as she sashayed down the isle. The groom watched her with love in his eyes. They could only see eachother. It was like nobody else was in the room.

I was a bit surprised during the pouring of the sand that they played such a contemporary Christian song, but it really was beautiful and fitting.

Then came the moment we were all waiting for... THE KISS! The minister said that the bride and groom were about to have their first kiss as man and wife... but they went into a room by themselves! He said they wished to share their first kiss privately. Every head turned towards the Duggar parents who looked absolutely stunned by this display. Michelle was shaking her head. My husband started to crack up, and I had to elbow him in the ribs. It was quite funny though. I wish you could have seen the looks on their faces. I don't even remember what the minister preached on while the couple was gone, I think something about how the couple was doing the right thing by remaining pure until this day. Then, he asked the Duggar parents to kiss so we could all see a Duggar kiss. Jim Bob and Michelle were still in shock, but they obliged and quickly pecked on the lips.

Afterwards, I heard Jim Bob and someone from TLC talking about altering the storyline to make it look like Jim Bob and Michelle were in on it the whole time. It was a surprise to most of us that the children wished to be alone, but I don't blame them. My first kiss was dreadful... I would not want all of America seeing it! However, it seemed to be most of all a shock to the brides parents.


The ice cream was simply delightful. Everyone had a scoop, and they had dairy free and they had sugar free so everyone was included in the ice cream. We all chatted and had a grand time together. Several people told Ben and Jessa they were proud of them for choosing to keep their first kiss private. Jessa's dressed was oohed and aahed over.

It was a lovely wedding. I can't decide who will be next, but I hope it is just as lovely as this one.


Love,

Ashleigh
