Parenting thought for the day

Psalms 22:9
Yet you brought me safely from my mother’s womb
and led me to trust you at my mother’s breast.
This really struck me when I read it the other day. You "led me to trust you at my mother's breast". I am teaching my baby how to trust. How that colors the way I treat him if I first ask myself, is this a way to teach him how to trust? I pray that I act in such a way that he would trust me and in turn trust God.

<3 Interesting verse. I am pretty sure I never read it before. At least not since I became a mom.

My friend Stacey just introduced me to your blog today. I am currently 2 days past my due date with my first child. Any tips on getting the baby moving before I'm forced into an induction (which I'd like to avoid at all costs?). Thankfully I'm contracting some, it's just sporadic for now. Thanks for your post.

Thanks for your comment Dirkey! I'm using both the tea and Evening Primrose right now... both were suggested by my midwife. I guess I'm on the right track. Keep in touch!
