EP 125: The Stumbling Season: Toddler Moms

All of us are going to face times in our life where we stumble. Just like a toddler taking his first steps, we are stepping into new seasons of motherhood. Toddlers and preschoolers are facing new challenges like learning to walk, feeding themselves, and gaining their independence. Their new found strength and curiosity can be overwhelming for a mom who finally found a rhythm with life with a baby. You might find yourself mentally frazzled, exhausted and feeling angry at this small human who won’t listen to the word ‘no.’

Remember when you grabbed your child’s hand as they learned to walk down the sidewalk. You held tight in case they fell. When their knees buckled underneath, you grabbed their hand tighter, sometimes lifting them into the air until they got steady again. When they stumbled, you didn’t chide them or get mad. You picked them up and helped them try again. As moms we feel like we have to know how to do all the things on the first try. Every new season of motherhood brings new challenges and things to learn. If we stumble, then we get back up. We have a Heavenly Father holding tight to our hand too.

Psalm 37:23-24, “The Lord establishes the steps of the godly. He delights in every details of their lives. Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand.”
