humbled again…

This is one of those things, do I share or keep it to myself? I figured I would put it out there and just let it be known! Has the Lord ever humbled you after you had the thought process run thru your brain, “my kid would NEVER _______!”
Brayden had football practice and so due to being their ages the parents sit and watch the two hour practice. We sit around the boys as they practice and let the kiddoes play together as we wait.
It was getting to the very end of practice, all the kids were playing when Jordan decides he’s mad and goes and kicks his brother. I get up, grab him by the arm and quietly but firmly tell him he had better SHAPE IT UP! I am gathering stuff to go, he does it again, I come near him and (I said I would NEVER have one do this, NEVER, and I haven’t!) he runs from me right into the football practice, right into the middle of the boys. Corvan, trying to be a hero throws down all the things he had in his hands to help me get back to the car and runs for him and TACKLES him. He thought it was a victory until Jordan was MAD and comes up from the tackle a SWINGIN’!!! They were punching each others lights out. Corvan of course having to defend himself and Jordan was making his point, fists and all! What was I doing? DYING! DYING!!! This was the biggest action all the parents had gotten since we started the season and they were INTO IT!
Needless to say, when I got Jordan within my reach again….let’s just say, practice was over, thank God for tented windows, and a 20 mile ride home so that I may cool off before being able to touch him again! Corvan? He apologized, but I know he thought he was just really doing me a favor by ‘getting him for me.’
I texted my sister soon after and told her, “just kill me now!” She wrote back, if you don’t blog this I will!!!
I think I have been humbled, the next practice I am happy to say, he was a pleasant four year old and I will not judge any other children and their behavior from here on out! I need to take care of my own and that is IT!

Jenay - I’m still laughing….humbling or not, I don’t care it’s just PLAIN OLE FUNNY!!! I was laughing so hard when the text came in I nearly wrecked. I love that stuff more than anything…of course NOT when it happens to me, but when I see it happen to others, and let me say it is NOT a judgemental laugh it just a out and out belly laugh that means I have SOOOO been there!!!! You tell Corvan Auntie Nay said he was such a hero for catching his little brother for his mom!!!! And Jor…sometimes when I’m in trouble I want to run like the dickens and come up swingin too.

Amy Sullivan - Oh I love it!

I see “those kids” all the time, and I was recently very humbled myself by some serious screeching and back arching come from one of my own darlings.

I raise my right hand and solemnly swear…I will not judge. ๐Ÿ™‚

Anonymous - SOOO funny!! Yes, I have been humbled many times after thinking “my kid would never________” and as you know, it is my youngest son who turns out to be my kid that _______.
So funny!

Gina - It really is funny. Now. I am sure you wanted to die. ALL of us can relate so don’t you worry!!

It’s just so “Jordan”. He must prove he is a big boy and cannot be handled. I told you… those youngest kids are the scrappers.

Love Corvan’s valiant efforts to help mom…
All I can say is those big boys better not underestimate that little one.

Trust me… this episode broke up the monotony of the football practice and entertained many. Even at your expense.
Laugh Momma Laugh! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Monica Fernaays - Oh my…I think we all have a humbling moment…, mine was this past winter, when my boys decided to fight over how could sit next to the gum ball machine while I was in the check out line. I had to pull them apart…they were rolling on the floor of the grocery store…proud mommy moment!!

Thank you for stopping by Organzied Chaos!!

Mama D.'s Dozen - As a mama of 6 boys (and 6 girls) … I can relate.

I’ve always said that the Lord gave us our oldest son first, in order to keep us humble. Oh my … did that boy put us through the ringer. He’s 26 now, and still likes to embarrass his mama. ๐Ÿ™‚

And, the little one being a scrapper. Oh yes. My 8 year old won’t let anyone intimidate him. As the youngest of a dozen children, he is not about to be “the baby”. Oh. My. No.

Thanks for sharing!
