On a Lesson Learned From the Pack N Play
Despite my efforts a couple of weeks ago to move Sweet Pea from the pack n play to a big girl bed, she remains in the pack n play. And apparently Lil Pumpkin wishes she were still in the pack n play too because yesterday I caught her and a friend inside it playing.
I told her she could not get in the pack n play because she was too big and that if she did it again she would be disobeying. So, a few minutes later, what do ya know...Lil Pumpkin is back in the pack n play.
All it took was a look from me and she said, "Mommy, I tried to obey but I couldn't."
It is so hard to obey sometimes. How many times have I encountered the same problem in the last week - "I tried to obey, Lord, but it really is hard."
So, please help me to choose obedience no matter how hard it is, Father.
