Enjoying the Art of Motherhood
[Editor's Note: This post resonated with me for many reasons. Parenting is hard work. While Kelli at Minivans Are Hot talks about not liking some of the hard stuff, she gives me hope as she is beginning to appreciate the art of motherhood. -Jenna]
I love being with my kids. I love doing the fun things with them. Going to the Zoo, playing at the park, going to the beach and the pool. I love do the activity of life with my kids. But the day to day training that’s imperative to their development?
It hasn’t always been my favorite.
In fact, the day to day instruction has always been a bit daunting to me. The business of training them to be respectful and obedient. It’s hard! Give me a fussy newborn over an insolent toddler any day of the week. Can I get an Amen?
