Welcome to The Tearoom! This week we have Kristen Duncan, a fellow writer and amazing momma, speaking to us on how we need to remember to treat our husbands as just that, our husbands, and not let our role as mom creep into our marriage. Thanks so much for sharing Kristen!
There are times though, such as, when I’ve had a long day at work, that being a goofball annoys me. I know he is trying to cheer me up, but the last thing I want to do is be messed with. There are times that I will feel he is being too childish, courageous, or careless and I scold him, “Trevor, stop that!”. One split second later, I find myself wondering, “Why am I treating him like a child?”
Since I became a momma, I am now always in “mom” mode. I am the one who reminds my husband to pack his deodorant when we go on
As a mom this is something that is so hard to turn off. Once you have it, it doesn’t just go away. Us momma’s worry about everything. We need to realize that not everyone can be our child, and that we don’t need to micromanage every situation.
We need to realize, though we care for our husbands and their well-being, they are grown men. They are not children who need to be told to brush their teeth, or reminded that they need to eat or go potty. They do not need to be told not to climb on that, or watch for cars when crossing the road.
Your husband is your husband. He is the father of your children. He is your partner. He is the man who God sent specifically for you. He is your rock. He holds you when you are weak, and helps build you back up. He is your best friend, the one whom you entrust with everything.
In 1 Corinthians 11:3 we read,
But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of a wife is her husband, and the head of Christ is God.
Your husband is the shepherd that keeps your family safe, and leads you toward the Lord. Most of all momma’s, he is not your child.
I’m not saying that I have completely quit scolding him over silly things. Though every time I am about to, I remind myself; he is my husband, not my child.
