I have a confession to make.. I didn’t realize until earlier last week I did this but when your husband is working ALL the time and you’re running like a single parent 24/7 it can be hard to let go of your authority..
I didn’t realize I did that until last week when Leon (my husband) handled a situation differently as I would have and suddenly I felt the need to but in..
Thankfully I caught myself before I actually did so and realized “Hey, he’s their parent too and not just that but also my partner. and If I don’t respect or trust him with OUR children how will our kids respect or trust him as a dad?”
So I decided to let go. And let him be a dad as much as possible and let go of the need to be the alpha parent. The parent that feels like she needs to be involved in everything they do or everything my husband does with them. I’m learning and deciding to trust Leon and embrace the way he does things differently as a parent. Him and I are a team raising these crazy kids whom we love so much. And even though we show love differently and discipline differently and even spend quality time with them differently God gave these children to Leon to be their dad just as he gave them to me to be their mom. He’s the perfect dad for them just like I’m the perfect mom for them. And daily we are seeking after God’s perfect wisdom to handle each situation as He would.
Are you a stay at home mama? how are some ways you let go and let the husband in your household? Is it sometimes hard to remember that he’s their parent too?
