Ever had one of those days? I heard a couple of stories recently. One was about a first-time mom who walked away for a second. When she returned there was poop EVERYWHERE. The toddler used it as finger paint. Then, another story of a mom doing dishes. Dad giving the kids a bath, only to discover tootsie rolls in the water, grossing him out so badly he lost control of his stomach reflexes. The question was, how do we keep our kids from doing that. You don’t. It happens. Sometimes, though, our kids like our response and may try to get the reaction again. What’s the spiritual lesson? Patience. While our world seems to be horribly interrupted by these moments. This too shall pass.
