A scolding that Is so deserved
Yesterday I went to the mall after work with my two daughters and their babies. We had a really good time. We shopped a little and we had a cookie at the cookie factory with a cherry soda. that brought back a ton of memories of my own two little girls! Our mall is a large one and at one end where the Macy's store is they have put in a huge Fisher Price lay place. It is the little people toys brought to giant sizes!! So fun! It is in a huge pit like area with high soft walls and benches all the way around. Piper, Savannah and Brooks all had a great time. Now here comes the scolding..... there were several small children there playing, climbing, running and just having a blast. Their mamas???? On their dang cell phones!! While babies were yelling, "Mama!! Look! Watch me!" they were chiming in to wait a second, hold on, yeah, that's great honey....while never even looking. What is the matter with you mama's??? These are your babies. God entrusts you with them for such a short time and you are wasting it on facebook? On pinterest? On twitter? On instagram? You are blowing it girls. Blowing it. When your little girl is 13 she won't be yelling for you to watch her but let me tell you....you better. When your boy is 14 he will not need you to approve him jumping off the giant chatter phone. He won't give you the time of day. Cherish this time, it is so fleeting and short. Phones cannot hug you, kiss you or look at you like you made the world! Put them down!!!
