Let’s be honest for a moment… parenting is hard. Even on the good days. Even under “normal circumstances.” (Whatever that means.)
My children are growing up. Our youngest (twins) will turn 12 this year. They start 6th grade in the fall.
I’ve started reminiscing about their toddler years… You know, that time I went without a full nights sleep for over five years? I promised myself back then that I would never miss it if I could just sleep through the night.
But they were super cute.
And that was like eight years ago.
Eight years is long enough to change my mind, right?
Parenting Is Hard…
Plus, I have this nasty migraine now that’s lasted for almost two years, so maybe sleep deprivation was better?
Then you have to consider that our oldest will be a junior this fall. He had friends graduate earlier this month. That hit me hard.
As much as I hated elementary school, I’m ready to send them all back.
That’s where my thoughts have been lately anyways.
This Week’s Featured Post
Thus, when I stumbled across Emily’s post this week, I knew I had to share it. It reminded me that being a mom of toddlers is hard, even under the best of circumstances.
You can find out more by reading her post on Splashes of Joy.
When reading her post I was reminded that we are often quick to judge other moms, when we are really called to love other moms… It’s something I need to do better at.
“So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three;
but the greatest of these is love.” ~ 1 Corinthians 13:13
