Monday Moments

New Baby

Nestling your new baby down to sleep,
You’re getting new memories you’re bound to keep,
Putting her down for her first little nap,
Just can’t wait for that first gentle clap,
She has such soft gentle eyes,
Watch them sparkle when she cries,
As she awakes you see two lovable eyes,
Looking up at you oh me, oh my,
Before you know it she’ll be growing and growing,
In your mind memories are flowing and flowing,
All of a sudden she’ll be that age when you look through the baby book page by page.

Monday Mayhem ~ Some Days I Feel Like Screaming!

If you are a mama and you can’t relate to this photo, well then you have got quite a fabulous life my friend!
I have three amazing kids. Three well rounded, super smart and incredibly gracious kids. But there are days that they display annoying habits, sibling rivalry and no manners. *Hence I feel like the picture above
But, we can even make others feel this way about us. Yes, even as adults! I know there are days that my husband is on my last nerve. I never get on his last nerve of course. Kidding, kidding… (wink)
We like to think that we’ve got it all together and we are anything but annoying. But, we are all imperfect people living in an imperfect world. There is no such thing as perfect…it just doesn’t exist. We should not try to reach perfection but rather master placement, respect and peace. Contentment and the ability to exhibit patience with others; your spouse, your children, your friends, your family, your co-workers…
When you exhibit these feelings, your demeanor will rub off on those close to you. Did you know that? So when your child screams at his brother for touching his toy, don’t scream back. You are only giving in to anger which is just what your child displayed. Lovingly correct the behavior. When your husband forgets to pick up milk at the store, don’t roll your eyes and walk away. Tell them that’s okay, you can get it this time. Maybe next time you’ll leave them a sticky note reminder or a voicemail to remind them.
So when someone has upset you, and you feel like the photo above, remember… you are not perfect and neither are they.
