Last week we were preparing the house for a family of six to come and stay with us for a few nights. We prepared two crock pots full of stew instead of one and gave them full reign of the basement. The bed that my parents were using when they lived with us last year is actually still set up down there. We had decided to keep it up for moments just like this.
Let’s be honest, this parenting thing is hard!
It takes a lot of work!
Most days we hit our pillows completely exhausted from all of the training 101 that we are doing at home but it IS totally worth it. Why? Because we are determined to teach our kids things that really matter in life, things that will help them live lives of value. That is why most of the time when that phrase slips out of my mouth (oh so many times!) I stutter and it goes something like this…
Have you heard or used this phrase before? What do you think about the message that is sends to our kids?
