Any one find they are less patient with kids now? I find myself with so little patience sometimes that I end up wondering if I'm even cut-out to be a mother. Could it be God's doing my kids a favor by sparing them?

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my siggy!

Augie, I know I told you this the other day, but it is SO MUCH HARDER to watch other people's children. I used to do a lot of babysitting, and even the babies that I loved almost as my own, I was always very ready to hand them back to their mommas. I used to worry about the same thing.

Once you have one of your own though, you determine their schedules, you already know what makes them happy, how to hold them just right, how to get them to sleep, etc. Having Grace is WAY easier than watching other people's kids ever was.


*Thank you so much to Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggy!*

I thought this was just me! I got to my moms 3x a week for an hour and a half to watch 3 kids and I don't even want them talking to me!

Other's peoples kids are difficult. They have different rules than yours.

Heck, to be honest I have about lost my patience with David and Melanie right now and have sent them to their room for the umteenth time to clean it. Joey... my patience with his roid rage is GONE. I just sit and hold him and poray for it to end soon as he hits and kicks and screams...

I am around other people's children ALL day everyday! I agree it is easier to have patience with your own than other's! Augie, don't you dare think that! You are a beautiful person, and are more deserving than most mothers I know!

I agree with above...Even kids I love like my own, I am quick to temper with...I had wondered the same thing, though.

I don't do well with other peoples children. Their rules and way of doing things aren't the same. Heck I lose my patience with my children at times. Please don't think that you aren't fit to be a mommy. You are such a good mommy they didn't need to learn anything from this sinful world. Don't be hard on yourself hun.

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my great siggie
