Blessing Jorryn ~ 30 Day Mom Challenge ~ Days 4, 5 & 6

Day 4: Kiss your child while they are sleeping.

Do you still sneak in at night and give your kids kisses while they’re sleeping? I do and I love how peaceful they look. Especially after a rough day, looking at their faces reminds me how blessed I am and what is really important. It’s also an excellent time to pray over them, uninterrupted!

Jorryn has a big loft bed, so getting to him is no small feat these days, although considerably easier than when I was still pregnant! 🙂 It amazes me how precious he looks while sleeping. During the day, I’m astounded by how grown up he looks and I wonder where my little baby went. But at night, with his face relaxed in sleep, he still looks like the little angel I brought home from the hospital over eight years ago. Well worth the climb up his bed! 🙂

Day 5: Tell yourself “he’s only ____ years old. He’s still a child.” Then treat him that way.

Phew.. this is a tough one for me. Jorryn acts SO grown up most the time. He reasons things out that are past his age and asks such intelligent questions, that I often forget how old he really is. Then when he acts like a wild, eight year old boy, I often get frustrated. I can’t tell you how many times I thought “but you just did such a brilliant thing.. why are you acting like this now?!” Day 5 was a great reminder, to stop and remember that he really is still a little guy, even if he wants to act beyond his years sometimes. I need to stop and give him grace as he learns and grows.

Day 6: Bake, make, or buy his favorite food.

Jorryn LOVES to eat. He’s always been a picky eater, but the food he does like, he eats with gusto. It was fun to bless him with special treats throughout the day. He was even treated to his favorite coffee from the local coffee shop, which is a huge treat for him.
