lessons of a full time WAHM

These few days, I have been struggling with my active preschooler. The school holidays aren't doing him much good since there isn't any outlet for him to burn his stored energy. I feel bad about exposing him too much TV but the problem lies in the fact that this is a busy period for our business. Plus, he had a couple of toilet accidents which made me so furious. What touched my heart was when he kept asking me if I was happy. He wanted the assurance from me that I wasn't sad or mad at him. I had to keep my composure and looked serious enough so that he won't repeat the mistake.

There is so much to learn from a child. They forgive and forget very quickly. One moment, he would be crying over the spanking on his tushy and another minute, he would be amusing me and resuming his normal self. It is so cute to behold yet there is so much treasure in these life's lessons. Amidst the pressures of work and stresses of full-time parenting, I am thankful for my boy and his life plus the lessons he has taught me, of which no one can show me in his innocent and simple ways.

Kids are the most wonderful things of a family. Without kids it would be so dull that one will not like sitting at home for a long time alone. They are the most fascinating creatures of God

This was an excellent read! It's amazing how quick children are to forgive and forget, and how much we can learn from them. That's what being a work at home mom is all about! We go into this line of work so we can be close to our little loved ones and watch them grow. Thank you for posting this touching blog entry!
