You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Nothing really prepares you for having children. Nobody gives you a handbook with fool proof steps for parenting….. if only!!
Today was a tricky day. Ben was tired. I am not 100% well and my patience was put to the test. I could have done better. I am not coping well with the whinging, the nagging and the constant boundary testing. My beautiful boy certainly knows how to push my buttons. But I am working on how to be more patient.
I am not going to say that it is my new years resolution to be more patient…… because that would mean I was destine to fail. I don’t think I have ever kept a new years resolution. I think I will call it my word for the year ‘Patience’. How does one become more patient….. I am not really sure. I might begin with taking a breath, smiling and counting all my wonderful blessings.
