paigeknudsen Dan was in an administrative meeting yesterday where personality and temperament studies were discussed. Y'all familiar with the lion, beaver, otter & golden retriever groupings? Always love studying these!Caroline & her dad are the easy to love "golden retriever". Loyal, steady, friendly. It's tough to be the wife or mom of this personality when they're mistreated, misunderstood, when untrue words are said, and just plain meanness is given towards them. I saw this years ago in a job situation with dan. Challenging time learning the painful art of sometimes just being quiet when the urge to speak up and defend or lash back would have been my preference. The mean girl thing is for the birds. #keeponshiningsweetgirl 22h
  •   jamnjilly I'm so not looking forward to that with my own girl:( I hate that! Stay strong:) 21h
  •   katedo I have a daughter that is a junior in high school. I don't know if there is anything worse than a mean girl, except a GROUP of mean girls. The saddest and scariest part is so many of them are very aware and manipulative with their actions. So often, kids (and adults) underestimate what a kind word or action could mean to someone, and how a mean spirited comment or action can affect someone and stick with them for some time. Soooo hard to hear how girls treat each other. Hang in sweet girl. 21h
  •   meredithtartermayo Hear hear!!!! 20h
  •   juliecorcoran530 I am a golden retriever too. It can be very challenging. I feel like it gets harder the older I get too. Love so deeply, but hurt so deeply as well. Praying for her and momma :) 20h
  •   browneyedgirlygirl Oh dear @paigeknudsen my heart breaks to hear this. As a mom is so difficult to hear and watch other kids mistreating your kids. I was once a "lion" even going so far as going ON THE FOOTBALL FIELD (during practice ) to confront to mean kid that was "face masking" my son and even coming up from behind him and pushing him for the "fun of it". They were on the same team and I just didn't get it. He was about 10 at the time. My son was "mortified" and told me I should have let him handle it (thing is, he's a Golden Doodle who WILL NOT defend himself) and I knew it was only going to get worse. He and the kid ended up being buds while on the team (I phrased the "talk" as a "you're on the same team-you need to get along...") and the poor kid has cancer now -which makes me feel horrible . Bottom line...I've calmed down my "mama bear" tendencies and am not allowed to interfere all all per my son (which I totally understand-he's 14). I was never the mom who didn't acknowledge that her kid was wrong, I just defended him when I was worried about his safety. There-whew! Middle School is so hard... 20h
  •   harvard03 So sorry @paigeknudsen .. I just adore working with your sweet Madi and know how hard it is to see anyone you love mistreated . I think we have all had times in our lives when others have made us feel less about ourselves . So reassuring to know God loves us just as we are . And that we can be assured that our good reactions to others will be honored . I know there are times when girls are blatantly ugly but there have been times even in my own life where for whatever reason there was just never communication or dialogue to even know that the other person was upset . Because we all do have different personalities I think unfortunately there are misunderstandings . Prayers that it can be resolved . There is sometimes great healing in just telling someone how you feel . #giveitalltoHIM#PRAYforourgirls#identity#onlyinChrist#thankful 19h
  •   kimberlyfalls It is really bad when there is a group of mean girls at church! 11h

paigeknudsen I consider it a big league blessing to be married to this guy--we had many medical bills last year-- he sat at the table and wrote a whole lotta checks tonight and is NOT grumpy. #godlovesacheerfulgiver #andacheerfulbillpayer ️ (Clearly this is a latergram. We're cuter with a tan ) #lovewell 5d

paigeknudsen Proud of her for so many, many reasons. Thirteen and middle school are no joke. #sheisnodrama #sheiskind #thosewhowaitonthelord 5d
  •   samantha2818 It's no different in the UK 😬! My 13 year old loves your daughters style - she thinks she looks cool 5d
  •   augustfields Right on. 13 is such a fragile, precious, moldable time in their lives... What an amazing price page we have to be a part of that! 5d
  •   kim_inglee I'm a secretary at a Christian Middle School where I have the complete and utter privilege of loving on and caring for kids in this age group all day long. It's such a fun age with many opportunities to speak into their lives. I hand out Kleenex to the mamas and the daughters and I calm down the unruly boys. But most of all, I laugh with them because underneath all the emotions, they're still great kids! 5d
  •   reginabsc Preach it, momma. Hardest years of our daughter's life! Will be praying. 4d
  •   betweenyouandmeblog No joke at all. 4d
  •   betweenyouandmeblog @kim_inglee no small job you have. those kids are lucky to have you. I bet they know that. 4d
  •   kim_inglee @betweenyouandmeblog Thank you for your kind words. One of your 'Family Rules' signs hangs proudly in our office. Directly across from the students who are waiting to speak with the principal. Timely message. 4d
  •   happy.healthy.mama Eeek no joke. What a beauty! 3d

paigeknudsen One of my favorite spots in our home is this 36x48 linen covered corkboard hanging in our kitchen. I frequently change out these pictures just depending on the season or perhaps a graduation or theme such as all black&white, beach, sunflower farm, or Christmas. Most of these are 8x10 and the one central is 11x14. I usually add some art as well. The two abatract are by the fabulous @_brittbass . And folks always ask-yes~push pins! A great way to minimize a zillion frames cluttering up tables & such and yet provides a fun way to enjoy ! #photodisplayidea 1w

paigeknudsen Finished painting Caroline's room and it turned out so cute! Pictures soon! Still need to prime the chalkboard wall. Since I had extra chalkboard paint I decided to paint this tiny bathroom! Will show the "after" shot of this tiny space and Caroline's room after I prep the chalkboard surfaces. She had one chalkboard wall ( I did all 4 walls of the bathroom) and the remaining 3 walls in charcoal grey. Im painting the girls bath tomorrow with the left over charcoal grey. Just in case you think our entire home is white #psych (try not to covet our fancy hardware ) 1w

paigeknudsen Got a little choked up this morning when the guy ahead of me in the #chickfila drive-through paid it forward and bought my breakfast. I had just been pouring my heart out to the lord about a few things heavy on my heart this morning while I was waiting for my turn. His kind gesture felt like it was Jesus telling me "I see you" . The kindness of a stranger ministered BIG to me today. #goodthingshappenatcfa #ifyouseekHIMyouwillfindHIM (it's not snowing today. Just a sweet unrelated pic of emi) 1w
