Oh Wait...

Saw this and made me laugh! So true!

Sometimes it seems like all I hear is: "Mommy!" "She took that (whatever it may be...right now it's the mini princess people) from me!" "Mommy, can you help me." "Mommy, I need to go potty!" "Mommy..."

And...

Sometimes it seems like all I say is: "you need to wait (except not in the case of using the bathroom...in that case it's, hurry, hurry) 😊!" "Don't touch that." "Share with your sister." "Be sweet!" 

Sound familiar to any of you mommys {especially with little ones}?! 

Today in particular was one of those days! The girls were both having meltdowns and it wasn't even 10 AM! We weren't even close to naptime yet!

 I started singing, "This is the day, this is the day, we will REJOICE and be GLAD in it!" It was AMAZING their frowns turned upside down and they started singing and dancing around! I was thinking a couple things...1. Why haven't I done this sooner, and 2. When we praise God with singing it causes us to be THANKFUL and not complain!

My husband told me when one of them came whinning to me about something. "I don't know how you do it all day! If I had to stay home all day long I don't know what I'd do!" Well, truth is we all have moments as mommies where our patience is thin and we feel like we can't do it, or we just want to take a week off from being mom...oh wait, that's not possible is it!?

Thankfully when we've reached the end of our patience and are tempted to get frustrated, irritated, or overwhelmed we can come to God asking Him to give us patience, wisdom, and strength to keep going and raise godly kids for His glory!

Children need lots of nurturing, lots of love, lots of guidance! They need us to be constantly pouring into them! Molding their little hearts to do what's right and learn about God and grow to love Him! It's a BIG responsibility, but so worth it when the good fruits of our labor come in! So keep up the good work!! We're in this together!
