Toddler Tales: Parent Teacher Conferences

Welcome back to Marriage Over Maternity! This week, we have a new mini series titled "Toddler Tales" where I'll be sharing all the mishaps and magic that occur when you're the parent of a three year old. If you're a first time, veteran or soon to be parent, I hope these stories bring you some joy.

In my amazing journey of motherhood, I've learned pretty quickly how strong willed a little one can be. This past week, my school was hosting our Spring term parent teacher conferences, and my child must have known that this was a crucial day for me because everything that could have gone wrong, did. The morning started as it usually does, bacon and toast for breakfast, the battle of doing her hair, and her lack of urgency when I say "Let's go, you have school today".

Eventually, we got to her school, and immediately the tantrum began! Rolling on the floor, screaming and shouting, refusing every directive given; I felt so defeated. Luckily, her teachers are amazing and reassured me that all would be fine. But, all wasn't fine. Three phone calls later, I found myself having to pick her up because she was inconsolable for over two hours! So, I had to resort to keeping her at work with me.

The Bible says "God is a present help in a time of need" (Psalm 46:1) and on this day, he was nothing short of it. Not only did we have early dismissal due to parent teacher conferences, all of my coworkers stepped in to help in between their appointments. This was such a blessing because I was able to tend to my own meetings while providing the comfort that my daughter needed. Had my coworkers decided that helping me wasn't their problem, I am not sure what I would've been able to accomplish.

Haha and gets better as they get older. Never sit at the back of the plane. I spent 6 hours being kicked stared at playing peek a boo and getting up and down so the child go run around.
