They Really Do Listen

Like most parents I probably could record myself and set it on continuous repeat. I tell my children the same things over and over again. “Put on your shoes, it is time to go.” “Please don’t talk with your mouth full.” “Please close and flush the toilet.” Sometimes I wonder why I bother to say anything at all, because it seems no one is listening. Often I feel this way about reading to them as well, so I was pleasantly surprised and encouraged today as we listened to one of the Narnia Chronicles in the car that they kept stopping to recount things from the previous two volumes which we read months ago. Perhaps I should put the daily reminders in a story.

About Wendy McCollum

I am a single mom to five wonderful boys. Life is an adventure, with many twists and turns. We live in hope, always, for our great God can redeem all things. There are so many funny and precious moments that slip by too fast. Perhaps here I can save them for when my own memory fails.
