As you know being a parent can be a challenging task. Yep. Most likely everyday! For instance when you hear the word “Mom…Mom…Mom…Mom…MOM!!!” over and over again. Don’t get me wrong I love hearing my name called but when you hear your name and you know that there is a whine behind your name….yeah…that’s the part of parenting I start to really really dislike. I think its true when they say nagging is definitely a trait passed on to your young ones.
I know my kids take after me. They are head strong and curious…two strong traits that can lead to a lot of interesting turn of events. For instance the time when Timothy and Shirley got locked in the car and just sat there as I tried my very best to figure out how I was going to get them out. Yep. That happened. Kids. They have their moments…but they take after the ones they call “MOM” and “DAD”. We tend to forget the younger years because of the hustle and bustle of adulthood.
Today I had a thought. We are Super Heroes. I never really thought about that but as a parent I now get it. Being a parent makes me a super hero. We are the light to our child’s eyes. They don’t see the bitterness, the pain, and the bad like we do. We fix everything, we make things right. I love this and feel now that we have been looking at parenthood in the wrong way. WE ARE SUPER HEROES. We fix the problems. We kiss their booboos. We tell them its going to be okay even when it grim. So parents hold your head high, we are the light to the bad. I never thought about it but we are the examples and we are the ones that make them feel safe. Embrace parenthood, remember even if you are having a bad day, you have the love of your child. You are golden to them and will always be.
Always remember your words are extremely important. “I Love You” are the three most powerful words a child can hear!
