Reading over “It’s Week 41—My Baby is never Coming Out!!”, I can’t believe that “My Baby” will be 5 years old in less than a month!
And “my baby”, Micah, that I waited so long for, is now a big brother. His “little sis”, Malia, just turned 2 in March.
Each day that passes by, I try to look at it as a gift from God. These children that God has given me, have taught me more about who I am than any other thing in my 40+ years. And they continue to teach me about love, grace, patience, kindness…basically, the Fruits of the Spirit, each and every day. And I am reminded on a daily basis, that I have a lot to work on!!
Motherhood is Hard!! I think that I got so caught up in “ I just can’t wait until this baby arrives” that I never stopped to think that these little ones would grow up to be “Little-independent-self-serving-sinners!”
Actually, I’m blessed in that I have very well behaved children, but wow, it’s lot of hard work. Never ending, from the minute I wake up and till they finally fall to sleep around 9:00pm (or later during the summer!)
But you know what, I love it! And I’ve talked to a lot of mothers out there and they all feel the same way. They’d never trade it for anything else the world could offer.
As a mom, what do you feel? Are you happy being a mother? What are some of your secrets to having a well behaved child?
I’ll share some of what I think helps in the days to come. Have a blessed day!
