Having three boys is no joke. They are full of life and energy. Always on the move. Playing. Fighting, screaming, running, jumping. Most popular lines are:
1. MUMMY. A million times a day for no reason at all.
2. I WANT.. I WANT.. I WANT
3. CAN I DO THIS . CAN I PLAY .. CAN I GO OUT?
My live wires!
As much as i enjoy spending time with them, Honestly they DRIVE ME NUTS AT TIMES….My friend rightly calls them LIVE WIRES. 🙂 And i have three of them. i get frustrated and angry with all the mess they make, I get tired of repeating the same thing over and over. The only time the house is quiet is when they sleep. I think God owes me an explanation I LOOK UP AND ASK, WHY? Why are these children so naughty and not listening . Why me?
Count your blessings
Then i started looking around and i saw a mother with a Down syndrome child, and another mother whose child has Autism and another with Cerebral Palsy and one more mother with a child who had skin disorders. These children can’t express, they don’t listen. They don’t know what they themselves are feeling, they can’t eat without help, they can’t walk alone. Some can’t even sit Coz their back is not strong. Their cry is sometimes, uncontrollable and unexplainable. Suddenly they withdraw and sit quietly and you don’t know why.
The child with skin disorder is in excruciating pain and every other day the mother has to along with the child go through the pain of dressing him in bandage so the skin won’t peel off. Ohhh the pain involved is beyond words.
I saw a child pulling the mothers hair, slapping her and she is burnt out both physically and emotionally. But the mother never complained. She told me,” IT’S NOT EASY, BUT AM TRYING “.
Another mother had so much pain trying to help her daughter to sit straight
Another mother kept running around Coz her son was toooooooooo hyper and it’s because of a disorder.
Another mother had to bear the pain of seeing her son scream while getting his Physcio therapy done and hold back the tears from her eyes so her child will not see her cry.
Seeing this my heart broke. But my eyes opened. I once again LOOKED UP TO GOD AND SAID, THANK YOU FOR MY PERFECTLY WELL, WHOLESOME CHILDREN.
God's special children
But i asked Him now, Why them God? Then i realized GOD made very special children and He entrusted them to SPECIAL ANGELS WITH EXTRA STRENGTH AND LOVE IN THEIR HEARTS to take care of His Precious ones.
Life to these mothers are not at all normal. They have to battle through so much of emotional stress and then the public makes it no easier. We sneer at their child, we make faces of disgust or sympathy
. They don’t need either..
ALL THEY WANT IS FOR THE WORLD TO ACCEPT THEM AND THEIR CHILD WITHOUT ANY INHIBITIONS.
Care for them and appreciate your children for WHAT they are. You are blessed to have your child. For on the other hand there are those who LONG to hold a baby in their arms.
