Have you ever had an awesome Mommy moment?
Motherhood amazes me, and humbles me for I am always a new mom, even though my bouncing baby boy is 7 years old now. Every stage/age of his life it is like I am a new mom. For every age group you face, faces new challenges.
Now I am sure I have had other awesome Mommy moments, but this one inspired me to write about it. It is back to school time as we all know. My son is now in second grade. He forgot to pick out his clothes for today last night(Though I told him to do so, he said he was too tired.) so I laid out something for him. Upon wake up he did not like the t-shirt I picked. Then he decided he did not want to wear shorts I picked out for him either he wanted to wear pants. This was all fine till he started throwing a drama fit over his pants. He liked none of his pants now either because they buttoned, and not snap button like his shorts(Seriously my son?)I come in to see his pants were strewn all over the place because he was upset none of them snapped. I tired to reason with him calmly, but to no avail. The drama tantrum pursues he doesn't want to go to school now! He does not like second grade! I look at the clock to see time is running out, as well as my patience. Why must we start the day this way? So I yell he is grounded today and tomorrow over his behavior. If he had picked out his clothes last night like I told him we not be in this mess, but he did not. He finally dresses, but he is now upset with me and does not want me for his mommy anymore. I say fine with me! Now go get socks and shoes on!
We then get into the car and I say, "Zachery can I have a kiss." He leans over and kisses me, and says. "I love you mommy I am sorry I acted out." I say, "I am sorry I got upset with you too." This was an awesome Mommy moment! What parent and child does not fight? It is when your child then comes and apologizes to you realizing they did do wrong. That is amazing, and I would assume a big thing for a child to do. In honor of that courage I as a parent admit I am sorry too that I lost my temper with him. I love him him no matter how mad I get . My life would be incomplete without him. I think this was an amazing Mommy and child moment don't you? ^_~
