So I went out last Sunday night. Just me and a few precious friends–and not a child in sight. It’s the first time I have done anything like that for, ummm, a few years. We went out for dinner and then on to watch a movie–Mom’s Night Out.
(It’s just as well I never knew back then what the future would hold. I guess that’s why God says, “Don’t worry about tomorrow.” He gives us grace just for today.)
Those were my play group days.
The constant influx of articles on “How To Raise A Smart Child in the 21st Century” and “Twenty Things You Can Do To Be A Great Mom” and “You CAN Look Twenty Again After Having Three Babies!” type stuff is, quite honestly, crippling for so many mothers.
We can never meet the expectations.
God has a plan and a purpose for our children’s lives, and He really doesn’t care whether we breastfeed, bottle feed, or co-sleep with our children! They’re all just ridiculous arguments. Nothing to do with eternity!
