Practicing Patience At Bedtime

Today was a long day. I had tons of work to do, several meetings to attend. To top the day off, I had to drive Ayva to our church, during rush hour, about a 1/2 hour away. Then come home. Then go back and get her a couple of hours later. Needless to say, I’m exhausted. When we came home, Ayva put on her jammies, and right before I was getting ready to kiss her goodnight and go in my room and crash, she said, “What about our Bible story?” A few nights ago, we started a nightly Bible lesson, and I’d told her that we’d go through it every night. I wasn’t talking about tonight, though! I meant another night, one when I wasn’t trying to rush her to bed!

Three months ago, I took a pledge with Little Remedies® to say yes to less negativity, and to be more patient in daily situations. The reminder popped in my mind as I inhaled a deep, calm breath and said, “Oh! Thanks for reminding me.” I sat next to her in the bed, and went through the five minute lesson. FIVE MINUTES, y’all. I was getting ready to lose it over the time it takes to watch commercials during a television show. When I was done reading, I held Ayva’s hand and she said a sweet prayer. My heart swelled up, and I felt grateful that I was able to be patient and present.

Another time when parents have to be patient is present is when their little ones aren’t feeling well. Little Remedies® believes that parents should say yes to less negativity, distractions, sugar…basically anything that takes away from having a wonderful quality of life. All of their products are free from artificial colors, artificial flavors and alcohol. The Soothing Cough Syrup has a natural berry flavor, and helps to relieve the symptoms of cough.  You can focus your attention on giving hugs and love, Little Remedies® will help to sooth their throat.

Don’t wait until your baby gets sick to practice your patience. Pledge, like me and other Little Remedies® parents, to say yes to less negativity, and yes to more patience and calm. Here’s a family that is saying yes to less, but in a different way. The Applegate Family is saying yes to less waste, and more opportunity. Check it out!

    Yes. So needed this. My three year old’s love language is definitely quality time. I have to tell myself to be more attentive to him now. They grow up so fast. Cherish every minute.

    I am doing my best to be aware that my patience is at a minimum at the end of the day. I am trying to treasure each moment I have with my children because I know they are growing up so fast. I don’t want to have regrets that I didn’t do the little things with them. I am sure Ayva was glad you took those 5 minutes.
