A Little Grace.

Sunday, February 9, 2014

So, last week I sent Ona to school with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich lunch in her purple crayon box.  I had completely forgotten to buy a lunch box for her.  Then, once there, I realized that peanut butter and jelly was a no no because of allergies.  I definitely felt like I could encapsulate that whole situation with #momfail.  On top of that, I hate that I think in hashtags.  To redeem myself, that very night I ordered a cute Dora lunch box for my big girl.  It came on Saturday, but I just had a chance to open it tonight.
Guys, three cuties can barely fit into it.  It is soooo tiny.  Apparently, I didn't read the item specifications very closely.  #nowonderitwasonlysixbucks.  There I go again.  I felt really silly/bad/frustrated.  Then I felt like an idiot for thinking that my two year old daughter will somehow be affected by what lunch box she has.  I mean, she had a really sweet time last week.
So, I gave myself a little grace.  I really stink at that sometimes.  Then sometimes I think I give myself a bit too much.  It is a hard balance.  One thing I know for sure...I am thankful for Grace.

Tell me I am not the only one who has had one too many mom fail moments as of late.


  1. Oh girl. You are SO not alone. Grace is must for this crazy thing called motherhood. My #momfails happen daily, but thankfully it's not only HIM that gives grace, but these littles we love. They're so resilient. You're such a great mama. :)

  2. Thanks friend. Whew, glad to know I am not the only one! ;) Thank goodness for His grace and their grace, for reals.
