Park Action


-The Park!


Filled with children who see this as their vacation- laughing, crying, running, falling, twirling, and whatever else you have seen happen there. 

 Pre- Mommy I knew I was going to be a little protective of my kiddos. I was "that" mom in the making, haha! Ok, so not really, but I did know that I needed to be careful with my “I would beat up a kid" emotions, 
(don't pretend like you haven't felt that!! :) ) 

Anyway, today I saw Leilla process some emotions that I never wanted her to experience, but that I knew were inevitable, a little girl said she did not want to play with her....AHH!!! What? Your 5, she's 2! Be Nice! (Crazy mom here talkin' by the way). 

I of course came to my senses within seconds of the "situation" and totally saw my daughter decide to let it slide off like Teflon.  I am sure she was hurt, but I also saw her overcome it, she slid it off like Teflon. She ended befriended a new little girl, and all was well with the world. 

It is so hard seeing your children grow and mature emotionally, I know that this is how God feels about us, his precious children. He wants us to know that it is Ok.

-Parenting advice #492, remember that your children have to learn some things for themselves, and that we have to allow them to do that.


XOXO,
