A recent FB post from a friend inspired me to share my finest Mother of the Year moment - as a way to encourage a friend and mother. Which then led me to an idea! I would like to invite you all in on the fun!
Let's get a little personal here and share our finest, shining moments as Mothers. Can you sense the sarcasm here?
Things can get a little too serious here at Mission Minded Mothering - humbly mothering with our mission in mind. The truth is - no matter what mission you have mapped out for your family, we're all human. We get tired, worn out, exhausted and snap. Things are not always a bed of roses with the mission being displayed at all times. I mess up all the time. My kids go wild. I lose it.
I'll start. Here's one of my finest shining moments as a Mother. ;)
It was 7:30 one evening - about a year ago, and I was done, exhausted and had lost my mind. All 3 kids were going at it in the car and irritating the heck out of each other. Everyone was screaming and fighting. I tried for so long to be patient. Then - I lost it. I stopped the car, got out grabbed Halle by the shirt (Who was on her knees irritating someone behind her), pulled her down to her bottom and yelled, "Sit your a** down now!" I couldn't even believe that came out. It was a first for me. Everyone froze stared at me, all eyes big as quarters, and we all started bawling! I'll be looking for my nomination!
A little side note: Here's how I followed up. I drove home as we all cried. We walked upstairs immediately to get ready for bed. I took a moment with each child, apologized for what I said and asked for forgiveness. I explained that we do not say words like that, and I really messed up. They each hugged me and forgave me. :)
Ok - Your turn! Leave a comment and share one of your finest, shining moments as a Mother. This will be fun!
