Perfect children in a perfect world. Ah, what a perfect world we weave.
During those times "Ummm, Ok..." is pretty much all I can say before
I hate to admit it but, once-upon-a-time, I was also a"perfect" parent. One among many!
That thought makes me smile now, but in a different way.
You know you are a true member of the Perfect Parent Club when you can no longer claim confidence in yourself and your parenting skills but discover confidence, rather, in Christ "...because really, only He can make good out of the mess we sometimes make with our kids."
Thank you, Colleen, for letting us be Ummm, Ok with admitting that we were never as perfect as we thought we were and we are now Ok with not having to live up to that kind of perfection.
The discovery is a bit more refining. ;-)
