Before I had kids I was a total "judger." I had all these preconceived ideas about how to raise a child and I KNEW exactly what was the right way and what was the wrong.
THEN I had my own kids, and THEN we all got the stomach flu...and now I am eating my words.
**the following pictures were all taken last night...
I wasn't going to one of "those" moms who let their kids leave a mess everywhere.
I wasn't going to be one of "those" moms who let their kids have processed baby food and snacks
I wasn't going to be one of "those" moms who let their kids drink juice and sugary snacks
I wasn't going to be one of "those" moms who had frozen chicken nuggets in the fridge
I wasn't going to be one of "those" moms who had kid stuff out even after the kids went to bed.
and now... I am totally one of THOSE moms, and you know what?!? its OK!
This weekend was brutal (sickness... oh the sickness) and I was just SOOOO grateful that I could throw those chicken nuggets in the microwave and pop a straw in the juice and call it dinner!
Before I used to shake my head at the moms whose kids would scream and be crazy in the store, now I offer them an encouraging smile and a pat on the back. Oh how my life has changed...
As moms all we can do is try our best, love our kids, and thankfully despite our best intentions they dont judge us!
I'm so grateful that Christ is merciful and has a sense of humor too!
