Dear Mom - Welcome to Patience Class- Love God


Dear Tara,

Growing up you didn't have a lot of patience...I tried to send things your way to give you this skill set but you somehow didn't use them as I intended...So I had to sit back and wait for the perfect opportunity to teach you...You are not a very good student when it comes to patience, that short-little-temper needed to be reigned in...


Try as I might, you just wouldn't learn growing up, so I thought I'd really get ya good with mommyhood...


First I sent you a little baby boy who didn't like to sleep, this drove you kinda kooky but paved the way to learn some patience. Then I sent you a baby girl, put her in the hospital a few times, played the waiting game with her life a bit..That really got you going...Heck, even better I thought if I gave you a baby with Down syndrome, making every milestone longer & harder to achieve, it would really teach you...


Gotta admit you're doing okay kid...Better than I thought you would be. But it's all a journey and you thought you mastered all there was to learn with patience...


Not so much my dear...


I thought I'd mix it up good this time...Really test your limits...


Welcome to potty training a toddler...




A toddler that likes to take his time, sit and read books, watch a bloody show, even play with his favourite sword - all while you have that other crying baby needing you...


A toddler who likes to pee on the couch, take off running while naked and only exclusively craps while napping...Heck while we're here in patience class, we might as well take the whole nap thing off the table...Let's just do "quiet time" now and by that I mean you can watch in the monitor for an hour to see what he's wreaking or if he's jumping out of the crib...On really good days it could be fun to see if you can get to him, before he takes off a diaper filled with crap and smears it in every nook and cranny possible...I'm up here giggling hard when I see you bolt up those stairs as fast as those little legs can go...And then to see the look of absolute horror when you find him and his creative masterpieces...Oh that look- This is fun...


Ah Patience...One of those lovely virtues, or values or heck I am not sure what folks are calling it these days...But you need it and I'm so glad you are finally learning...


It's not over yet..


Enjoy and you're welcome.


Love God


P.S- Promise putting that toddler in a timeout is way cuter in big boy underware...That is until he pees against the wall...Cheers.
