Oversized sweaters + ripped denim

Oversized sweaters + ripped denim

Hello Wednesday!! Can y’all believe that it is another week closer to the holidays ALREADY?!? Am I crazy that I am already planning and making a mental list of all the items that the kids are mentioning that they want (not need.. lol). With November approaching so quickly, I am wishing that the cooler weather would come and ย STAY. Louisiana weather is so unpredictable, but we do have a days that oversized sweaters are the perfect choice. Here is an ย oversized sweater from Chicwishย that I was able to wear for a few hours before breaking out in a sweat. I just adore the oversized silhouette and backless detail. Here are a few more oversized sweaters from Chicwish that have caught my eye:

While on the subject of kids, isn’t it amazing to watch their little personalities blossom each year. They go from total dependence on mom and dad to I got this to I still need your attention and affirmation to stop embarrassing me. But, throughout the years, one thing that is certain is they always desire and want us to notice them, to acknowledge their talents and strengths, to approve of them regardless if they make good or bad decisions, to listen and to sympathize with their feelings.ย Isn’t this what we still want as adults?!?

“Your children are the greatest gift that God will give to you, and their souls the heaviest responsibility that He will place in your hands. Take time with them, teach them to have faith in God. Be a person in whom they can have faith. When you are older, nothing else would have mattered as much.”

Lisa Wingate

My three oldest kids swear that we favor our youngest. We honestly don’t (he just demands a lot of attention), but as their parents, we want to hear and to respect their feelings. Sympathizing with how they feel creates a safe place for them. They need to know that we take those feelings seriously. They need that safe place in order to continue to share their heart. Creating an environment where they can be open, honest and respected is so important. But, balancing it with speaking the truth in love. So, we can continue to affirm them that they each are loved and valued equally. Gosh, this parenting thing can be challenging.

“BE who you NEEDED when you were younger.”
