I want a do-over.
I want to have patience with Cailin when she can't find the jeans that "don't make her butt look funny"...I want to be calm with Cassidy when she is being disrespectful in her speech to me...I want to wake up early enough to pray before the girls are up so I will have a reserve of grace to draw from...I want to remember that this is only one morning of chaos and not an indictment of my parenting, or representative of every morning to come.
Tomorrow will come, and there will be my chance for a do-over.
Thank You Lord that your mercies are new every morning.

Be kind to you. Sounds like you have a wonderful outlook on parenting, it's the entire picture and not one little snapshot. I would not love to repeat raising our kids - there were days that I wanted to pull my hair out or run away - and now I'm truly close friends with both my daughters and have a son who calls me just to talk, on his way home from work. Most encouraging verse in the Bible, "and it came to pass.....' xoxo
