Never pee alone again…Motherhood

I was talking on the phone with a mom of young children today and suddenly, I am pretty sure a fight broke out.
How do I know? The sound. I heard screaming, crying and sounded like……………………wait! I can’t hear anything…..
Crickets….
I think the mom muted me!
Gasp!

Why can’t I hear the scrapping in the background? (it’s funny now)

Because we want to appear to others like we have it altogether.

But, I know – she doesn’t!

Why do people assume your kids were never a pain?
I had young kids once.  Trust me, I know how it goes….
You never pee alone —- again!
They get along perfectly — until your mentor drops by!
They don’t want you all day….until you get on the phone.

So you plan ahead for this phone call….
Before you hop on the phone, you sit them down with candy and lollipops and the perfect movie to teach them – NOT – to capture their attention

By golly – with this set up, surely they won’t interrupt me!

Oh, but they do!
They fight over the sucker because one of them got her sucker “in my hair!!!”

There is just no way to control your little ones! Embrace it! Train them, but embrace it. It’s ok if you aren’t perfect.

We didn’t think you were anyway. 🙂

Days are short with your little ones. Mine are growing up too fast. Enjoy each day and put your perfection measuring stick in the trash – let Jesus be perfect for you!

Love,
Sheri
