Today as we were walking home from the playground Candace said, "It's not fun to be a mom." My first thought was, "Yeah it's really not that much fun sometimes. It's a lot of hard work." Then I started worrying that she was becoming too influenced by worldly ideas. As I was imagining what I needed to say to encourage the idea of motherhood in her mind I thought to ask one question first. I asked her, "Why?" She replied, "Because mom's never play, they only talk and talking is boring." Phew! Something much more basic was going on here.
