Okay, Okay!!! We all need some humor in our life and I promised to share some on this blog... so I could not resist this post.
Yesterday as I was foraging around my home in the endless pursuit to tidy up I began feeling the "cranky mama" evolve inside. It was quickly transforming, almost like the incredible hulk. So.... there ya go.... we will now affectionately call is "hulk mama." Hulk Mama was coming out in full force as I walked in the bathroom and saw this....
YES! REALLY!! Someone did this!! Now... I am not going to point fingers because honestly.... it could be any one of my children. And I started thinking... THIS.... THIS... is why mama gets cranky! There are some things that require VERY little effort to do and when they get left for me to do because someone was (let us call it what it is) too lazy to do it.... HULK MAMA makes an appearance.
Really, I could not help but start chucking as I began discovering all the others things that induce Hulk Mama transformation! I just need to know.... CAN YOU RELATE? LOL
So, what do you think folks?? Can anyone relate to these photos or am I the only lucky one?? LOL
It is all part of the parenting journey and as I have progressed in my parenting I have gotten a tad better at making them come back and fix the ridiculousness!!
I pray this gives you a chuckle for the day... or at least remind you... we are in the trenches together!!!
Peace and Blessings
Today, after church, I began pondering with God, the struggles I have in parenting. I think a universal parenting problem is struggling with the reactions we often receive from our children when we tell them no or something they do not want to hear.
A lot of times, it may feel like the easier thing to do, just to let them have their way, rather than deal with the unpleasant attitudes and behaviors that follow setting boundaries and limits with them.
God revealed to me, if you look at this clearly, what is really happening is I am allowing my children/ child bully me or manipulate me into giving them what they want by plaguing me with their negative behavior.
Why I allow this, I don't really know But I know I do at times. My job as a parent is not to make my children perpetually happy and content with life, nor is it to be their best friend.
God has stated very clearly what my job is.... and that is the only way I stay grounded!
Here is a little video clip God lead me to make today..... I hope it speaks to you, if you struggle in this area of parenting!
Peace and Blessings
