So it’s 5 days into the New Year and this morning I was already starting to feel like a horrible Mom. I broke out into an impromptu lecture with my kids and felt really bad afterwards. I took to Instagram to write about it right after my kids left for school. Mom fail or Mom Lesson? Have you ever had moments like this with your kids? Read Below.

My Babies; we started off on a not so good note this morning with Mommy having to be in lecture mode for a good 10 minutes. Mommy called it a “teachable moment” and just went to town with it. You all sat there and listened somewhat attentive, mostly terrified I think, who knows, but you didn’t interrupt me. You went on to eat your breakfast like nothing happened and by the time you walked out that door behind you, you were all giggles and chatter and you all hugged and kissed me and told me you loved me and said for me to have a good day…I was teary as I marveled at your quickness to move on and forgive me and still tell me you love me. Thank you for your kindness and love towards me. You make me want to be better and do better as a person, today when you come back from school, I will hug you tight and allow you to have a treat on a weekday‚̧”

I was reminded of Matthew 18:3 which says, “Then he said, “I tell you the truth, unless you turn from your sins and become like little children, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven.” NLT.

I’m by no means a perfect Mom. I’m thankful for God’s Grace and how He has a way of speaking to me always in the most unconventional ways. 

ps–I apologized to them when they got back from school and they just shrugged me off…to have the heart of a child.:)
