The Mommy Factor

My Darling DaughterMy daughter will be 8 months old next week, and I am amazed at how quickly she has grown – and how little I know as a parent!  As she has begun crawling in the last few weeks, I am seeing our house through different eyes – those of my child.  Suddenly, a cabinet is no longer a cabinet but a dangerous playland filled with deadly toxins.  A simple plug that powers the television set is now a hazardous rope of electrical energy waiting to zap the most unsuspecting child!  Even our round coffee table is a danger zone, causing numerous head bumps as my daughter tries over and over to pull herself up with little success.  I once thought our home was a “safe haven”; but now I see every sharp corner, every breakable artifact, every possible way for my daughter to be injured!

Some may say I’m insane; others just call it The Mommy Factor.


About themommyfactor

First of all, I am a child of God. I was blessed to come to know Him as my personal Savior when I was just 5 years old! God has blessed me with a wonderful husband, Jamie, who puts up with all of my crazy ideas; a beautiful daughter, Hannah, who is teaching me how to mother in God's grace; a handsome little boy, Ephraim, who keeps us all laughing; and bossy, sweet-natured Harmony, who is never boring! We are enjoying the ups and downs of being parents and look forward to meeting others who are on the same unpredictable journey of parenthood!
