The Ride of a Lifetime…LOVE


This morning my Stinky fairy woke up crying,  “Mommy”. She fell back to sleep on her own and woke up normally about a hour later. She came downstairs to me and while going potty makes a very sexually graphic statement for a three year old. She even acted out a piece. My mouth dropped….I’m sure. I looked at her,  completely blown and simply said, “I love you”. After a few minutes,  I decided we needed prayer. So, I cried and prayed over her.

So, then I’m lost in my thoughts while cleaning the house. I come back downstairs to find her in a corner…fondling/manipulating/whatever word with herself. I understand that they’re discovering and such but after the statement she had made… I had to take all the deep breaths.

To top all this off, CPS called to do a follow-up investigation today.

I called to speak with the case worker and therapist. .. no return call as of yet. Court is this week and I don’t know if the plan was decided to be changed or not.
I just have a lot of thoughts.. concerns…and doubts. I’m trying to lean on the only constant as of late…. Love.

  1. The fondling self in toddlers is apparently very normal. They do as an anxiety coping mechanism. Happens a lot in new daycare settings at nap time, in transition periods, moves, etc. Supposedly is a phase that doesn’t last for a long period of time. But the other you describe could be indicative of other “bad experiences”. Prayers!

  2. What a tough journey you’re on together. Our system seems to fail our most precious and innocent of people. I thank God that in the midst of all the bad their are people like you whose light shines bright in the darkest of places. I said a prayer for you all. God Bless you!
