I'm a mommy of three children - ages 3, 9 and 11 and I love being a mother! It is a very rewarding job, but also one of the hardest and I have had days when I've held my head and asked God to continue to bless me with grace because without it I don't know how I could make it. Yes I'm keeping it real and I'm sure I'm not the only mother or parent for that matter that has experienced this. Kids are such a blessing from God (but boy oh boy I've had moments when I thought they were a curse - lol). Wanting to make the right decisions for your kids and not screw them up is what makes part of the job of parenting tough along with their stubbornness and backtalk when they are old enough to truly voice their opinions. Why don't they just obey us, huh? Like we're the adults they're the kids, we are older and wiser and they should just listen and we won't have a problem. That seems so logical - right? But nooooooooooo, sometimes kids have to make things tough by doing their own things instead of listening to reason. But then again there are those moments when the battle of parent and kids have ceased and parenting is less stressful. You experience life through the eyes of your children. You revel in their accomplishments and new experiences and you have so much pride in the children you are raising. These moments are the best! See I already made you forget about the stress I mentioned earlier, huh? Such is life though, we've got to take the good with bad and make the best of it.
