It's tough being a mom. It's even tougher when some one makes you feel like an inferior one. That happened to me last week. It was not intentional, but I felt convicted all the same. This is not the first time it has happened and I know it won't be the last. I had some friends over last week to swim and we were all having a good time. Even our baby was enjoying a little water time. One of my friends has this adorable, cherub like, cutie-patutie who is about 8 months old. She was in the pool with him the whole time. And not pushing him around in a baby float, like me; she was holding him and helping him to try and swim and playing with him. Half the time I let my friends push my baby around. I was barely with her in the pool and she spent the whole time in the floatie. I feel terrible about it. Three kids in and I've gotten lazy. I should play with my kids more. Thank you Mrs. M. for enlightening me. You're a great mom!
While I'm mad at myself for getting complacent I'm glad I noticed before it was too late.
