Yes, that’s me. I’m the mommy devil! I’ve been called many things before. But this one tops them all! When most of you might think that I am this great and wonderful mom, sometimes my very own child thinks otherwise.

I know my kids love me and appreciate me and i love all the ‘YOU’RE THE BEST MOM IN THE WORLD!” notes that I get. But there are days when they don’t get their way or when they get disciplined and they think that i’m the worst mom ever.

This note was drawn by my anonymous child several years ago after I grounded this child for doing something this child wasn’t supposed to do (this child wants to remain anonymous.)

My initial reaction when I saw it was “Ouch!” which soon turned into amusement. I realized that as moms we have to be ready to be misunderstood to do what we know is for the best of our children. There will really be times when our kids will not like what we do but we just know that we gotta do it anyway, for their own good. Sometimes the easiest thing is to just give in to our kids and avoid the emotional stress that often comes with discipline. But that is only a short-term solution.

Our kids may not completely understand us now when we discipline them, but I know someday they will thank us for it! So this mommy devil is not throwing her pitchfork just yet. ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. LOL @ Jeremy!

    but ouch… the first time i’ll ever hear Raph say anything even as simple as “i don’t like you” i think i’ll lock myself in my room and have a good cry ๐Ÿ™ then after i’ll get over it and look forward to the many “i love yous” and “you’re the best” to come… thanks for such an encouraging post, Ate Jenn! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. yeah, ouch nga ate jen to be called like this. pero tama ka, never throw your pitchfork! we discipline our kids because we love them. and one day, they will appreciate us even more. especially when they become parents themselves.

  3. This is a great blog post! Looking back, I really thank my mom and dad for not giving in to my tantrums as a child. I’d be a completely different person if they did! As I become a mother in the next six months, I pray I’ll have the grace to stand firm in raising up our child in the way that he/she should go. Thanks for sharing!

    1. you’re right. it is grace that we need! thank God that we do not raise our children on our own. i know that you will be a great mom, as long as you completely depend on Him! you will definitely love being a mom!:)
