My Spoiled Little Molly


Tonight after I put Molly to bed, I was enjoying watching some TV, alone because Eric is at a meeting. Then I hear this little cry, and I think, hmm...she's awake?! I walk into her room and she is standing there, holding her arms out to me. Now, most doctors, and hardcore moms would tell you not to pick the child up, blah, blah, blah. This post isn't about crying it out or not. So stay with me...

I pick up my baby girl, and hold her. She instantly puts her head on my shoulder and starts to fall back asleep. As I am standing there rocking back and forth I think what a little spoiled girl I have. Eric and I of course have made her this way :) Then I start thinking about what a wonderful little girl God has blessed us with. Ten years ago I was told by my doctor that I was probably never going to have children. Well the old fashioned way at least. So being fifteen and knowing that really made me want to have kids more then ever. But I always had this peace about kids, and getting pregnant. Molly is proof that God works in miraculous ways. She is my little miracle.

Then my mind wanders off a little bit more, and I think about how good it feels to have her cuddled up on me, and how maybe I will be "tougher" with the next one, and they won't be so lucky to have mommy to come rescue them an hour after they have been put to bed. Yea, probably not. I won't be able to resist them either. Then I think about God and all his children. He knows every single hair on their head, all their thoughts, and most importantly all their prayers. I am lucky if I comb Molly's hair, let alone know all of her hairs.

Then I come back to hearing Molly snore, and now I know she is out for the count. I lay my baby girl down and whisper I love you. And leave her room feeling overwhelmed with blessings. So whether you have kids or not, look around and find your blessings. To some it's kids, to others pets, and to others it is a good friend. Be blessed, feel blessed, because tonight I feel very blessed by my little spoiled Molly.

I've always believed in CIO but since Carleigh's diagnosis I don't use it as much as I once did. I guess I gained a new perspective.

Hello. I stumbled across your blog through Holly's blog & thought I would read your most recent post. I just wanted to say........that was really SWEET, I wish more parents felt like we do. Our children grow so quickly and every moment with them is precious. I'm glad I popped in to read this.

I love your little Molly and I agree that it's very hard to stay tough to those little cries. There's nothing quite as sweet as the feel of your child curled up against the crook of your neck. I love being your mom and I love watching you be mom. It's a role that God has given you and you honor Him by doing it well.

Loving them and letting them know that they are secure and safe in life because mom and dad are there and always WILL be is the best you can do for them, you are a GREAT mom!

There is no such thing as to much spoiling. I spoiled mine then and spoil them now and they turned out to be great women, wives, and mothers. They grow up so fast and there are no do overs in life. So, don't be so hard on yourself, I rocked my girls, I couldn't help myself. I love them so much and now love the granddaughters too.
