Sorry Santa there won't be any cookies for you next year either but
you are more than welcome to have a piece of cake we make for King
I'm pretty sure Abbie learned swallowing coins is not where it's at today. Coughing up those coins was physically painful and she understood the seriousness of the situation when I told her we had to call Dr. Hieber. But what did momma learn today?
I can't experience something like this without trying to learn
something myself. I was the culprit who allowed Abbie to play with
the coins after all. I saw her grab them out of the car and used that
as an opportunity to teach her to ask before just taking things. I
didn't take them away from her. My question to myself this afternoon
was am I too much of a type B momma? I have some A-ness too but have
realized thats more about control than anything.
I often joke that I have to get off the phone or whatever because my
kids are juggling knives or building a pipe bomb. I'm not that laid
back but I know I'm more laid back than most. Am I too laid back
though? Probably in some areas I am but I'm not going to fear this.
This afternoon my mind went off to all the horrible things that could
happen to my children because of my perceived character flaw. I then
remembered that I constantly pray that the Lord would equip me with
wisdom and discernment as a mom. I have to trust that God's grace is
sufficient in my oversights as a mom. He is the one who holds all
things together in His hands. It's nice to know as long as I'm doing
my best to be the momma that God created me to be, I don't have to try hold all things together in my own hands.
