keepin' me in check

Me (yesterday morning in the everyday rush to get out the door and to school on time): Grace, PLEASE stand still. I can't do your hair when you're doing all that (dancing... some kind of hand motion-cheer thing... balancing on one foot).

Repeat x3, tone escalating each time.

Me (in total exasperation): I NEED you to act your age, like you're almost 5 and not be so wiggly like you're your brother's age (yea, definitely NOT a proud mom moment).

Grace: But mama, God made all of us special and different and I'm just not a be still kind of person.

OUCH and THANK YOU my sweet girl. I'm sorry.

Today marks the first day of Lent...I think PATIENCE is what I'm being called to work on.

{Oh, and the picture has nothing to do with my post...just a sweet little vintage find that I hope to put to good use for Grace's Vintage Kitten Birthday Party next month.}

Kids have such a special way to show us and let us know what is truly important. Oh, the many lessons that we can learn from them if we really pay attention!
I'm proud of Grace being able to speak up her mind in such a nice and positive way.

This is totally my daughter as well. She's 8. I would love to tell you it gets better, but as you said, it's the first day of Lent so I shall not tell a lie! :) Patience is also something I strive for this Lenten Season! Thanks for your daughter's thoughts. It really gives me a new perspective on my daughter! Love your blog!!!

Isn't Patience something we could all work on. I appreciate your honesty. My little girl is only 3 but she's never still & I get frustrated sometimes. I call her my wiggle worm. I am going to remember Grace's comment the next time my patience is trying me ;-) Love the Vintage Table cloth for Grace's party. So cute !
