Just when you think you’re down…


This is a quick one.  I found this post on Facebook and had to share it since things around here have been…uhem…parentally challenging lately.  I’m not sure why but our kids have been dialing up the sibling rivalry and there has been plenty of sassy attitude from these little darlings of mine.  It’s been taking a toll on me and I’ve been feeling like a crappy mom.

Then I saw this video and while I wasn’t expecting to react emotionally at all, I did.

That’s ok.  Call me a sap.  But watch the video first at least.

It reminded me that all parents go through tough times when we feel inadequate, not patient enough, or too busy to focus on what our kids are trying to say.

  1. Yup, watched this yesterday and got a bit misty-eyed. I think I’m going to have our oldest watch it, just to get his reaction.

    I’m not a mom, but I know a couple who will love this video. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Thank you so much for the video. It’s beautiful. I recently wrote a discourse titled, A Child is Wiser Than Any Parent. In watching this video, it becomes evident that perhaps the child’s greatest wisdom lies in capacity to forgive. I enjoy your site, Lindsay.
