But seriously, if you don’t obey rules, do you think your kids will? I suppose there are emergencies and who am I to judge (I think that’s one of the very MAIN things you can learn from the nativity). But, today as I was hauling in my donation for the teacher luncheon, with thoughts in my head about the 2 class parties I’m helping to host along with how I’m going to get my Christmas gifts for friends and teachers done, and other gifts for shipping. Along with what I’m going to serve the missionaries tonight I see a mom do it wrong.
And then I see the Principal standing there giving her what for.
And somehow it made me happy inside. It made me realize there IS a reason I do all this. I feel like I’m insanely volunteering myself out this week. But my kids watch, they see I’m constantly doing things for others. Hopefully they do things like that for others one day. Hopefully they realize how important rules are and why everyone needs to follow them so we can all be safe. Instead of Santa’s elves, God gave us children to watch our every move and emulate us. Oh boy, I’m screwed now. 🙂
