For the last few months, I had joked with my sister that I needed a sock monkey hat for winter so that I could walk my 13 year old to her violin class. Shelby insisted that was NOT an option because I would embarrass her. My sister got me a sock monkey hat for Christmas… I laughed so hard opening that gift… Shelby look mortified!
Several days after Christmas, the kids got to go chopping and spend Christmas gift cards that they got from family. Shelby, with a gleam in her eye, bought herself an owl snow hat. Her dimples showing, she beamed that now, she would walk her dad and I to our church service wearing her hat!
Ephesians 6:4 – Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.
I have found that making life fun for the kids makes life fun for the rest of us! Shelby is an AMAZING teen and although at times does some of the most interesting and highly questionable things, she is growing through life with an amazing sence of humor!
If you ever get a chance… but a sock monkey hat!
