I think my children are here to teach me to slow down and not to expect things to happen on certain time frames. They are here to teach me patience and I'm sure much more.
One of my recent posts was about starting to potty train Michael. This has not gone well at all and I was starting to feel like I was doing something wrong because I couldn't get him to pee on the potty. I posted a question to my twins group and so did another mom. Most people responded that kids will train when they are ready not on your time line. That made me stop and think about my life. I need to stop and slow down and not expect that everything happens when I want it to happen, but when it's meant to happen. My kids walked when they were ready, they are talking on their time frame, they will be out of diapers when they are ready. Life takes time and I need to be patient and let it happen
I can't wait to see what else my kids will teach me as life goes on!
