About Me


Name: Elleoz

From: Fort Mill, South Carolina, United States

I am 32 years old and have been married for 6 years. I had two children under 2 (hence the blog name), but now they are actually 3 and 2. Maybe it is time to change the blog name? Drama Queen is 3 and Wildman is 2 (15 months apart to be exact). I have a Bachelor's Degree on Criminal Justice from Applachian State University (Go Apps!) and have been at my current place of employment for going on 7 years.

    What I Am Listening To

    Update~ Banned From Church
    Here the reply that I got today from the Music Director:

    "Hi ,
    I talked with the girls about the situation the last few weeks. They shared that they were overwhelmed trying to help WM connect with the group since they had some many other little ones to teach at the same time. I believe you spoke with L last week. She says she never meant to imply that you should not bring your kids back. She was just offering a possibility that maybe a few more months would give WM some time to be able to handle the program when he is a just a little bit older and maybe he’d be more interested at that time. But of course the choice is totally up to you! They said that DQ was doing wonderful and seemed to really enjoy the choir. I’d hate for her to have to miss out too. Thank you for sharing your concerns with me. Please know that WM and DQ are both welcome. My personal thoughts (even though I’m not there to see any of it!) are maybe let DQ continue and then see if WM is a little more interested after Christmas. But again – do what you think is best. The most important thing to us is that we teach our kids to sing about Jesus. We’ll do that the best ways we can.

    Thanks again for letting me know about everything. Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help. grace and peace".

    I am sad. That's the only emotion I can feel right now. I fight back the tears as I sit here at work. I was so looking forward to seeing my little ones sing and participate in the plays. I am glad that DQ is still small enough that she won't notice that we aren't going to choir anymore. I just can't justify letting her do choir AND dance while WM gets to do nothing. Not to mention I don't have the time or the money for gas to be running back and forth two nights in a row.

    AM and I have talked about it and we are going to revisit our old church. The main reason we left was because of the lack of opportunity for our kids. But the "bigger and better" church has left us out in the cold too many times. At least those at our original church seemed to care about us and wanted us around. Going to church shouldn't take this much effort to belong. At least that is how I feel.

    And to top it all off, I just called Time Warner Cable and even though they have a damn line running in my yard I can't get service with them. So I am stuck with crappy cable, no high speed cable, and a too high bill that will be going up in a matter of months just so I can watch Basic Plus cable on all my TV's. Either that of spend another $1000 on new TV's. :sigh:

    What a great way to start out the week :(

    I really feel for you on this. I hear all the time about kids in the special needs community not being welcome in church. Your story makes me realize that many churches seem to to not embracing children and families in the way they should.
