Eavesdropping is wrong. I think we can all agree with that. However, sometimes it does a Mommy’s heart good to eavesdrop… I mean, listen in, on a conversation between Daddy and Son when they think Mommy is busy.
Here is a conversation one Mommy may have overheard this morning:
Daddy: You need to get your teeth brushed.
Son: Dad, I am waiting on mom to get my mouthwash ready.
Daddy: Well, if you don’t get started….
(interrupting Daddy) Son: Oh, Mommy already got it ready.
Daddy: We have the best Mommy.
Son: Oh, yeah, she’s the greatest!!
Even though mornings are never perfect at the Jones house, I am still trying to teach my son– to love him in unique ways and to give him tiny blessings and examples of ways to love others.
I don’t know that all children need help getting their mouthwash ready, but how can you intentionally show love your child this week?
