Just when you’re sure that you will be overcome by the ache of watching your children grow before your very eyes, you have a night where not one, but two of them pull their own teeth.
And that, my friends, is how I know that God blesses in all the stages of parenthood.
I stood aside and cheered them on and cringed and hid my eyes while they fearlessly yanked out teeth. And I thanked God that I didn’t have to do it myself.
I wonder why they don’t list this milestone in the child development books?

It seems like a noteworthy moment. Praising God tonight for the little things, like children who are still little enough, but who are also getting just big enough. It’s a good time to be a mama.
