Literally Laughing Out Loud!

I know I should stop plagiarizing this book (Out of the Spin Cycle by Jen Hatmaker) and I know that those moms who have passive children that always obey the first time, never raise their voice above a whisper, and wouldn't dream of being aggressive, will have no idea why I found this to be so hysterically funny. But for those of us who have been or are the mom chasing their diaperless child down the cereal aisle in Target, it makes us feel normal. Without further ado, here is an excerpt from the gut-wrenching, laugh out loud devotional that I started my day with.

".... Because sometimes, despite your careful strategizing and planning and reading and organizing, your two-year-old takes his diaper off in the middle of Target and runs up the cereal aisle while you scream at him like a mental patient. And sometimes, after you've planned the perfect playdate, your daughter bits your new friend's baby and flushes her phone down the toilet. And sometimes, when your precious firstborn son - the one you read all the baby books for and raised lovingly for ten years - opens a fresh, sassy mouth to you when you are already idling high, you accidentally tell him to get a shovel, go in the backyard, and dig his own grave. This, I don't have to tell you, is behavior Ted Tripp would frown upon in Shepherding a Child's Heart."

You should DEFINITELY buy this book!
