My sweet daughter-in-law showed me this article last week when I visited my grandson at school. Found it so interesting that I shared it with several friends and now all of you! 😊♥️

One of my friends who’s extremely brilliant said to me that she doesn’t regret her choice to be a stay-at-home Mom. She felt it was an important calling and wanted to raise and nurture her children. Not the most glamorous job because you can’t just clock in and out, and you have to be on top of day-to-day operations. 🤣  My friend went on to say that she cherished each and every moment that she tended to her kids’ needs. She shared with me this profound statement: 

“I realized that in the workforce I could be replaced. However, at home, I can never be replaced as Mother.”

We no longer live in a “Leave It To Beaver” or a “Brady Bunch” world, but I do admire those Mothers who are blessed with the option of being homemakers—while my heart goes out to the many working-Moms who have no choice but to juggle multiple jobs just to make ends meet or help put food on the table. I understand your triumphs and struggles all too well. 😘

I was blessed with a Godly mother who made me feel at home away from home. We felt loved wherever we were in the world when our family toured. She is one of the the reasons why I took my children with me on the road because I wanted to be with them just like Mom was with my siblings and me. 

My Mother and her parents were educators. She believed that when you teach or watch someone else’s child, you can love them but you don’t have to worry about them when they go home. “It’s a Mother’s job and privilege to do all the worrying”. 

So proud of my daughter and daughter-in-law for being amazing Moms who love their kids! They reap rewards daily for the choices they made early on to devote their time to their children. (Grandparents do too! 😁💕) And by the way, my grandkids are really smart, I’m sure due to lots of love and xoxo! 😘💋🤗💋

In the article, the study found that the child with the much more fully-developed brain was cherished by its mother and that the child’s Mom was also fully responsive to her baby. The 2-year-old with the shrivelled brain was neglected and abused. The difference in the way both Mothers treated their toddlers explains why one child’s brain develops healthily and fully, and the other’s does not. 

Interesting to note that a baby’s interaction with their Mama determines how the brain grows. It’s the time you spend with the children that will have positive affects that lasts a lifetime. No wonder my bros and I have such big heads! 🤣😂🤣

Take the time to hug your little ones on this #Happy #Sunday! 😘💋
