Who’s In Charge?

Who is the Mommy???

Sometimes I think that the boys forget that I am the mommy.

I know that the power struggles are inevitable, but they grow so tiring!  I try my best to remain strong and be in charge.  They try so hard to wear me down.  Unfortunately, sometimes, they succeed.  As hard as the power struggles can be, they are worth it.  In the long run, the kids are learning to respect authority while not mindlessly following someone (at least I hope that is what they are learning!!).

    Thanks so much for stopping by.
    I love this post. I don’t know how old your kids are but I’ve felt the same way many of times. As my girls grew more and more I think with each stage this happens at different levels.

    Blessings…

    A friend told me a couple of years ago that there comes a time when your young teen boy will look at you in some sort of male dominance kind of way — a power struggle kind of way — and, she said, to watch out for that or it’ll catch you off guard, and hold your own, but also accept that as a part of a normal boy’s journey into manhood. Sure enough, a couple years later, I knew EXACTLY what she was talking about!

    By the way, I love your blog look! ~ Lori
