Gentleness

Our Little Monster Feet

our-little-monster-feetOur sweet little girl loves to wear her monster feet slippers everywhere in the house.  They are the only shoes I can keep on her feet right now and watching her shuffle around in her walker wearing them always cracks me up!  They are so darn cute!

Now that she is getting a little more mobile she is also getting a little more attitude.  Sometimes I laugh to myself when she shows her strong-willed personality when I’m trying to take away something she is not supposed to play with; she holds on tight with her eyebrows furrowed and grunts and growls.  Other times I’m not enjoying the attitude so much like when she bucks, squirms and screams at me while I’m trying to change her poopy diaper.  This is when I remind myself of this simple little bible verse.

“A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.”
Proverbs 15:1.

Showing gentleness towards her when she is turning into a not-so-sweet little monster feet is a way to show her my love and brings an overall calmness to her; to be angry only stirs up anger back.  I love my little monster feet baby and can’t wait to see more of her personality as the days go by.

Hope you all have some fun and safe Halloween celebrations in the upcoming weeks!

Cheers,

Jennifer
