3 Parent Fails

Lesson #1: ALWAYS double check your children’s apparel before leaving the house.

Sunday mornings are always hectic and crazy busy for us. My husband usually leaves the house around 7am to head to the church, while I get ready, round up the kids and get them fed and dressed. Then we head to church. Last year, before we lived in the same town as our church, we were in a rush to get ready and I told the kids to all grab their shoes and head to the car. My girls went out ahead of us and of course, played in the yard. We shoved the kids in the car in the hurry to get out of the house and to church (30 minutes down the road) on time. We arrive at church and I open the door to let the kids out and realize my daughter has no shoes on. She was notorious for taking them off in the car, so I didn’t think much about it until I looked and couldn’t see any in the car. Then I realize…she didn’t follow directions and there were NO SHOES to be found. So just a few weeks in to our new ministry and the preacher’s daughter shows up without shoes. Nice!

Lesson #2: Count your kids before leaving the house.

“We left for the ballgame tonight and when I got to the school I had a text from this kid that said, ‘Where are you?’
It was then that I realized I forgot him. He walked home from my mother’s house and no one was home. He’s still mad at me.” -Colleen Hoover, Facebook

Lesson #3: Do I even need to say it? Always supervise children when coloring with markers!!!
