God’s Little Angels-Or Not?

Now that we have been blessed with our children, why didn’t anyone tell us how hard parenting was? There is no book on how to be a perfect parent, or what to expect on your journey. Each family and child is unique, so it will be a learn as you go type of thing. All I know is, that little fairy tale of having the perfect little angels, has been demolished. *insert laugh here*

14947783_10207510666500560_1801016506353906688_n  Have you ever been that type of mom that would just roll your eyes at your obnoxious children? I have! Let’s face it, we try to give our kids the best of everything, all for them to act like spoiled little monsters. I have three boys that are all under six years old. They were the sweetest little things when they were babies, but then, they grew up. Now, I have three boys who drive me batty day in and day out.

Guess I’m the only one who feels this way huh? Maybe, maybe not. I have to deal with one smarty pants, one who is over the top sensitive about everything, and one who just doesn’t follow the rules, so yes I roll my eyes constantly. Let’s not even get on when they are a combined force…. HELP ME. Since I have boys, there are always toys flying everywhere, jumping off the furniture, running up and down the hallways, shouting, tattling, fighting and crying. Again, why didn’t anyone tell me about this? I know that there are going to be years more to come of this. Since each child is unique, I am learning how to accept each of their flaws, just the way that God accepts my flaws. I am also learning to pick the battles. Does that make it easier, no, but I am learning. Unless there is immediate danger, I have learned to tune out all the chaos. Boy oh boy is it a glorious time when their dad walks through the door.2af2d5046b800401_crazy_mom

In accepting that this is my new normal for a while, I still have a job to build my boys up to become Godly men. Let’s look at some verses on how to build our children up in God.

Proverbs 22:6 states: Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.

Titus 2:7 NIV states: In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness.

What does these verses mean to you guys? For me, it means that if God blessed me with my children, then I must be an example for them. Teaching them and showing them with my actions how to be God like. Don’t worry moms, it will not always be like this. Let’s keep doing our part in raising Christ like children and enjoy the bumpy ride while we can. I can honestly say, that once they are grown and out of the house, I will probably look back to now and miss when my house was in a whirlwind.

I want to hear from you, how are your little Angels treating you???

*Please study to show your self approved. Read the scriptures provided, for yourself*

  1. I have very large gaps in between my 3 children;aged 20, 10, & 5. So I feel like I’ve been dealing with children Forever. I had to learn how to take time for myself and not feel guilty when doing so helped me to be a more relaxed mommy. I make sure I give each child their own special alone time with me, so I can focus soley on them. You love your children equally, but never forget they’re their own individuals as well.

  2. Parenting I see my biggest accomplishment yet! I love being a mom of my 3 hard headed, begging, stubborn, greedy, selfish, crumb snatchers! Lol! I now have a teenager who I have to pray from strangling on a daily basis. Are they angels? I’d say absolutely NOT but they’re mine, and I’m blessed to have them. 😊
