they are watching you.
they are watching every move you make.
this sweet girl, this 2 year old, when I was telling a friend the other day what she loves to do…it sounded awfully familiar….. she likes to drink coffee, talk on the phone, do her “bible study”, play at the computer, journal, unload the dish washer, sweep the floors, change the laundry, put on makeup and brush her hair….I mean, I wonder where she get’s that from?
they are watching. she’s watching every move I make and even though she’s only 2, my actions are speaking louder than my words. when she wants to come sit beside me at the kitchen table when I’m working, she grabs a piece of paper and a pen and says “bible study”. melt. my. heart. she loves to write and draw and create. she loves to help me around the house. she loves to help her brother, baby her brother, help him along. she’s a little mama.
it’s convicting you know? it makes me think twice about how I spend my time when I’m around her.
am I on the phone too much?
what does it say to her when my Instagram is more important than her?
am I being a godly example to her in the words I say or how I speak to people?
the dogs….we have two dogs and yall, they annoy the crap outta me sometimes. poor things, they used to be my babies and I swore I would not be that person that had a kid and all of a sudden abandoned their puppies but…no it’s not that bad, but I hear my kids so many times yelling at the dogs, “NO ELI!” “GO AWAY MILLY!” I mean…I try to teach them not to say NO so much, but how can they learn when I’m always shouting no to the dogs? THE DOGS???
There really isn’t an ending to this. this will go on forever. I still watch my mom, and I still pay attention to every word she says and how she says it. as parents we have such influence over our child’s lives.
let’s influence well!
