Seren-MOM-ity {Teach, Teach Again, Repeat}

SEREN-MOM-ITY{things I have learned as a mom as I have utterly failed and picked myself up dusted myself off and tried again and then discovered a most delightful gem}

     This week as a mom has been joyous and devastating all wrapped up with a bow on top.  My children had a 4 day weekend simply because I find it ridiculous to go to school on Monday and have Tuesday off and then back for the rest of the week so I had a quiet protest and kept my sweet little peanuts home and we had a lovely extended weekend!!!  Yes you can do that and to be honest if our school district continues to have that as a schedule it might become a new tradition in our family because it was awesome(yes I am the mom that loves snow days)!

    It is always amazing to me the highs and lows of mommyhood.  We go along and are doing great and feeling like I got this mommy thing down and then CRASH!!!  You run into something that you have never dealt with before.  You realize you taught something to your children but missed something so subtle so minuscule you would think it was unimportant but it was the most important for one of your children and that little detail being left out made for a huge mess to fix.  With tears, hugs, love, repentance, and lots and lots of teaching...had by all!  This was not only a huge growing experience for my child but for me as a mom as well.  

     It reminded me that when we are teaching our children as a group we need to think about each individual in that group and ask some questions to yourself.  How do they each learn the best?  What information do they grab onto the most..facts, testimonies of others, quotes?  Is there a child I will need to have a one off with after?  

     As moms we are teachers.  We all have wonderful effective teaching moments with our children that are glorious and then others that fall flat.  Its when we truly mess up and reflect on that error that wisdom comes into our minds.  We are NOT going to have perfect days everyday or heavenly teaching moments every time we teach as our children are rolling on the floor or rolling their eyes. Don't give up or beat yourself up over an oversight or a mistake when teaching your children because I tell you it is going to happen. Giving up only makes the situation worse and beating yourself up over a mistake in parenting only hinders the moments when pure inspiration can come to your mind.  In those moments of devastation remember you are a wonderful mom who made a mistake and it does not take away from your greatness! Dust yourself off and Teach, Teach Again, and Repeat it is one of the greatest gifts you can give to your children: taking the time to teach them!
