We thought the snow had left us after it was 60 degrees, but it sure showed us that it isn’t over. King is obsessed with shoveling…like watches out the window all day to go shovel and tells me all day that he needs his coat on, boots, and to go outside. I love that he is such a little helper. However, I may have told him that mom’s don’t shovel ha and only dads do because I don’t want to be outside all day every day ha. He would stay outside and shovel nana’s house, the sidewalks, neighbors, everyones house all day if I would let him.
Teaching King a good work ethic is something so important to me, I want him to learn to serve others, and that helping others is something so important. I try so hard to lead by example, but how is the best way to teach your kids service, work ethic, and everything else? I truly believe that each of us at mama’s are doing the very best we can with our littles, that we want them to be good people with good values when they grow up. I feel like it takes a village to raise our little ones and you guys are my village, the people who I look to for support and love. Help a mama out pretty please?
Well, until then I will just keep doing my best with the things I know, leading by example, and praying that I don’t screw up this sweet little boy of mine. Being a mom is so hard sometimes, but I truly do my best and love this sweet boy more than he will ever, ever know.
