Motherhood is a lot like Candy Land

Candy Land was one of my favorite games as a child.  It is so bright and colorful, and I just love it when you get the special cards that transport you closer and closer to the finish line.

As a grown up, I find this game to be far less enjoyable and sometimes downright frustrating.  All that work to move forward, only to find yourself transported back to the Peppermint Forest.

I have discovered many similarities between the game of Candy Land and the early seasons of motherhood.

One thought on “Motherhood is a lot like Candy Land

  1. I know, at the time the kids very little it felt often as going no were, but looking back it does feel like a race to the finish line, it went so fast! Grace is needed not just in midst of it all, but in looking back too. Great comparison!
