Security in the moment
If you live with a 4 year old, you never know what you are going to get. One day they might act 20, the next it's like they are 2. Right? In the world of a 4 year old, emotions change minute to minute and there's no guarantee what you're going to get. Sometimes as a mom I stand looking in the mirror saying 'i'm really responsible for this little human being? WHAT?!" I can't promise that I'm not going to lose it right now! Let me encourage you that in the eyes of your child, you're the best parent EVER. You don't have to be wonderful in the eyes of anyone else, especially your mom-friends that act like they have it all together. Just be you. When you're spending 5 minutes reading or making dinner or putting on jammies or giving a kiss at bedtime, you are putting a little bit of long-term security in their moment by moment world.

Welcome to Our Family Night Site!
I'm a mom of 4 boys and enjoy the rough and tumble world of adventure it brings me. I'm super blessed to have the support of my husband and he gets the vote for Man of the Year award in my book. We have Family Night one night every week as our chance to be intentional about spending time together. I love my kids, family time and most of all Jesus, my Lord and Saviour. He gives me the ability to be creative so here I am sharing that with you. Enjoy!
