Heroes in Parenting, June 2009

Okay. I know it’s not June anymore. Can you pretend with me that it is? I actually picked all the nominees in June, just got behind on posting. And all these parents are definitely HIP.

MommyTwinGirls is rethinking her policy about children watching TV. I laughed when I read this post! How many of us have walked this same path with our kids?

4Tunate reflects on an ordinary day of blessings. Can you imagine parenting quadruplets? I can’t.

Dawn of The Joys of Twins has a post detailing how her boys fingerpainted for Father’s Day. I don’t think I tackled fingerpainting when the boys were 2. That takes bravery!

Mom of Twin Girls appreciates the peace and sweetness of her girls napping.

Also. Do you recall Sammie, the daughter of two HIP parents from last month? As of this past Sunday she was still fighting, but the end is quite near. She’s sleeping most of the time and eating very little. If you wouldn’t mind praying for this sweet family, and possibly stopping by Sammie’s Caring Bridge page to leave a supportive comment, that would be great.

Thanks.

Our new HIP bloggers are invited to take a badge back to their own site if they like. That’s completely optional, of course, as explained in the how it works post.

    I know and Parenting quadruplets is not an easy task. But I think its an adventure for every moms to have many kids at home. Actually I wanna have one pair of twins but I just can’t imagine how hard to born them.
    Being a mother is a very great experience.

    You forgot to add that guy who juggled his three children while tightrope walking over a pit of alligators.

    Lurerny A. Parenting quads is a whole ‘nother universe! It’s not all that hard to have twins…at least not in complexity. Everything just takes longer. Waaaaay longer. Especially when they’re little, because they can’t do for themselves. Now that all the boys can manage themselves better it’s not really different than a family with 4 kids (from a management standpoint).

    Alfred, gimme a link and I’ll check that guy out. 😉

    Wow, I can’t even imagine parenting twins, what more quadruplets! It takes real skill and patience, and a whole lot of motherly love to be able to manage all the stresses and problems of doing so! These parents are definitely heroes in my eyes!
