Never Again Pee Alone … Motherhood

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

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 all together.

But we don’t!

Why do people assume that your kids were never a pain?
I had young kids once. Trust me, I know how it goes.
You never again pee alone.
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 (ha! to hold their attention).

All right. With this setup, 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 okay 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!
