But ever since that first big "it's a girl!" announcement, I've been messing up with rather alarming regularity.
Thankfully, God has taught me a lot of lessons along the way. The other day, in fact, He showed me that it really is possible for an older mom to learn new tricks.
I'm so grateful to my friend Ruthie Gray for letting me share this lesson. I'd love to have you head on over to read the rest of this story about the mom-with-mileage "aha moment" I wish I'd had when I was a younger mom...

Oooh...I love Ruthie and you're already speaking my language, Elizabeth, so I'm heading right over to check out the rest of this post. :-)ReplyDelete
Blessings to you!
Aw, thank you, Marva! You've got it right: Ruthie rocks. :) Thanks so much for taking the trip over...bless you!Delete
We were all perfect parents with all the answers before children. They do teach us so much. Found you on Bloggers Pit Stop.ReplyDelete
Yes and yes! :) Thanks so much for finding me!Delete
Left a comment over there. ;)ReplyDelete
Thank you, my sweet! And your name (well, Syncopated Mama) was spoken in hushed and reverent tones earlier today when I was talking to my mom about our big family Christmas and what we could do to entertain all the kids. My mom mentioned something of yours she saw or saved or downloaded or signed up for or something. So, thank you for saving our family Christmas!! xoxoDelete
Ha! "Mom with Mileage!" CRACK me up!ReplyDelete
I will head over to read at Ruthie's place, but let me first confess that I was a much better grandmother before my grandchildren were actually born, so I guess this is a generation-spanning affliction.
LOL, Michele...that is a riot! Thanks for the honest perspective. ;) I'm honored to be in the "moms with mileage" club with you. It's a wild but rewarding journey! :)Delete
