Mom-Mondays – a time to share

by

Thanks for all of your sweet comments and emails wishing me well on my dental surgery last week. Everything went great and I’m pretty much back to normal, although I didn’t feel up to finishing the post I started to write for today (a story about something that happened with my son… I’ll post it next week).

So instead, I thought I’d open things up for sharing…

Take a minute and finish one (or more) of these sentences…

1. One of my favorite parenting memories so far is ______________.

2. When I have time to myself, I like to______________.

3. As a mom, my biggest challenge right now is______________.

4. One of the lessons I’ve learned is as a parent is _________________.

My answers:
1. The day each of my kids were born (meeting them and seeing them for the first time, not the labor part!).
2. Exercise or get a massage.
3. The new emotions and situations that come with parenting a pre-teen.
4. Grace is more powerful than punishment in teaching our kids.

I can’t wait to read your comments! Have a great Monday. :)

    So glad everything went well and you're feeling good. Love these questions so I'll join in…1. One of my favorite parenting memories so far is the random "huggings" that I receive from both of my children for absolutely no reason! They do these fairly often and I cherish each hug.2. When I have time to myself, I like to read.3. As a mom, my biggest challenge right now is teaching a boy that it's okay to be gentle while still encouraging him to be masculine and a girl that it's okay to be strong while still encouraging her to be feminine.4. One of the lessons I've learned is as a parent is to follow your instincts and your heart.Peace and blessings to your day!Jeanine

    I know this is supposed to thoughtful responses, but to answer #4. 4. One of the lessons I've learned is as a parent is just as soon as you changed the sheets on the bed, your child will get sick and throw up all over them. Sorry that happened not to long ago. Glad you are feeling better!
