A Thomas Point of View

Earlier this month, my munch had a breakdown. Why? Because his dad was now out of the hospital and home resting and wanted to resume the visitation scheduled. He was getting better and wanted to spend time taking care of his son. I didn’t argue. When you are in a shared custody situation and trying to keep the peace, you just do so.

Well, when I told munch that his dad was picking him up from camp on Thursday he started questioning me “Why? Is he bringing me back to your house?” “No, munch. He’s going to keep you for a week” I said. He started to cry. I asked him why he’s crying and his answer caused me to cry.

Munch said, “Mommy, I want to stay with you. My home is with you. Don’t we have fun together? I like visiting my dad, but I live with you.”…

I was thinking about childish things..

The happiest and most fulfilled people I know keep the inner child alive and well!

Christina de Vries

There is something so utterly magical about how the minds of children work. And being one of them who’s (hopefully) going to be a child at heart for the rest of my days I find it particularly sad whenever I meet someone who doesn’t remember what it was like to be a child. To play and use ones imagination to the fullest and not caring if it didn’t make sense to anyone else.

I believe that writers (like myself) can easily access that door into their own childlike mind. Maybe it is that we partly just refuse to grow up completely. Because who would ever want to do that?

I’m not saying that being an adult doesn’t have its advantages. But there really isn’t much that can top that adventurous bliss of childhood. I would easily trade every party for the opportunity to climb that tree that touched the sky…

33 Ways to Be Child-Like Today

dream_big_superman_by_wolfaddictIf you have ever listened to anything I have ever said or have ever read anything I have posted, read this.  I cannot encourage you more to awaken your inner child.  There is a reason that every philosophy and religion references being child-like or uses children’s view of the world!

Being childlike without being childish

Possibly one of my favorite attributes of children is how quickly they forgive and move on with life. Also, they make friends easily.

Flatlander Faith

“When I became a man I put away childish things” (1 Corinthians 13:11).

That would be things like:

-wanting to be the centre of attention
-wanting to be entertained
-wanting what somebody else has
-wanting other people to do what I want
-feeling sorry for myself when things don’t go the way I want
-trying to get even
-not admitting when I have done something wrong
-blaming somebody else

“And a little child shall lead them” (Isaiah 11:6)

” Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 18:3-4).

Childlike qualities:

-willing to trust
-taking delight in unexpected beauty
-feeling happy because others are happy
-feeling sad when others are hurt
-giving without counting the cost
-eager to learn

10 Things Parents Do To Have “ME” Time

In Between Moderation

Sometimes mom’s and dad’s just need sometime for themselves but with the demands of family, work and young kids we might carve out these moments in interesting, sometimes pitifly sad ways. I am guilty of doing these things on more then one occasion. Can you identify yourself on this list.? If so don’t feel bad, we have all done it.

  1. Spending extra long in the shower so the spouse has to deal with the constant calls of “Mom.”
  2. Spending extra long in the bathroom with the door locked. Sometimes we all just need a time out.
  3. Sneaking a bit of the kids Halloween candy or their school lunch snacks.
  4. When we get caught eating said snack we tell them can’t share because there is nothing left. Then continue to eat the rest when they leave the room. (Shameful I know)
  5. Make breakfast for dinner…
