There are some days where you don’t have enough hands to take care of everything when it comes to your kids?
I feel your pain…
As mothers we all have those days.
The days that your kid or kids are driving you crazy…
- Maybe with the fighting with siblings
- Or making a mess of the house
Whatever you say or do; they aren’t listening or for that matter don’t care…
You just want the world to stop, so you can jump off and never return.
I’m going to let you in on a BIG SECRET that always worked for me.
You see we all have a weapon we can use if we know where to look.
When my kids were born I always knew they were a blessing and I was the one that God appointed to raise them.
(No I am not trying to push religion down your throat. I haven’t even been to church since my last grand kid was baptized.)
I knew that HE was just intrusting me with them on this planet called earth. They were really his kids and he was using me to raise them for him.
To make a long story short, whenever I would run into a problem with them that I couldn’t solve I would say my little prayer and wait for an answer to pop into my head.
I have to tell you it works like magic.
Let me give you a few examples…
My 2 older ones were always hitting each other. They wouldn’t stop no matter what I did or said. It was freakin driving me crazy.
One day I had enough.
Said my magic pray and low and behold…
Hand cuffs, yes I handcuffed them together and let them hit away.
Guess it took all the fun out it, because they stopped the hitting for good.
My littlest one I couldn’t get her potty trained for love or money.
- Tried the pretty little panties.
- Tried taking her every few hours.
You name it, I tried it.
Last resort I said my little prayer
The very next morning we were getting ready to go to Sunday School and she said, “Mommy I want to go to Sunday School.”
I looked at her and said, “They won’t let you go to Sunday School until you use the potty like a big girl.”
She cried and yes, it broke my heart.
But come Monday morning she gets up and comes to me, “Mommy I want a pair of panties on.”
We got out the panties…
Put them on and that was it.
She was potty trained. Done deal!
Now I know that there are some of you that may not believe in God like I do, but when you are in a desperate situation, aren’t you willing to try anything?
I know I am
When you have kids you can use all the help you can get at times.
Stop and take a minute to really look at this.
If you are a believer you know that HE loves you (even if you aren’t a believe HE still loves you), so that means HE also loves your kids.
Then why in the h#&& wouldn’t you ask HIM for help when needed?
Aren’t you willing to try?
It also works really well when they hit those teens years.
Those nights when they are out with their friends and you are walking the floor hoping they come home safe and don’t get into any trouble.
All I did was say my prayer and ask HIM to watch over them, since I wasn’t there.
I would go to bed knowing that they were in good hands.
What a relief that was…
Here is a video and song that might make a difference in your days as a mom.
And maybe those gray hairs won’t come as fast.
So what is your take…
Are you willing to try it or are you brave enough to go it alone?
