Parenting at Your Own Pace

Wed, May 06, 2020 9:10 PM | Tonya Flowers (Administrator)

Y’all, so I realllyyyy wanted to do this 3 step process to get the twins potty trained as fast as I could, but honey, having twins is a monster when it comes to potty training, along with actually being present with everything else God has called you to steward.

But I’ve realized that what works for everyone may not work for my family. I’ve also learned that motherhood is not a race. Motherhood isn’t an opportunity to perform and dress your babies in this facade that you have it “all together”.

Using your children in that way is sooo unfair to them because to you, they’re just a puppet in your show that you use to prove that you're good enough.

My advice: Some say that babies can potty train in a weekend, or in one day or in 30 minutes. But just like motherhood, I’m taking this thing one day at a time. It’s not a rush, and we can set the pace however we want it to go. Not based on what everyone is doing, but based on the grace that God has given us. And I’m okay with it.

I’m not ashamed to be at my own pace and you shouldn’t be either, mama. Don’t compare your mothering with someone else's. How they mom is different than how you mom and that’s okay. Set your own pace, do what works for your family, and rest in God’s grace, knowing that you are more than good enough.

P.S. If God wanted someone else to be your children's mom He would have chosen them, but instead He chose you. Prayers & Hugs
