Because motherhood will never be a perfect science

Words of Appreciation

on January 28, 2013

“Mommy, you’re my best friend!”

The words of Baby girl at two and a half years of age, along with a great big hug.

It was one of those little things that just made my day.

You know how you just need a little pick me up and your children just happen to have impeccable timing in that precise moment?

I’m not sure how they know, but they just do and it makes everything else seem so unimportant. You’re no longer that tired or that angry or that frustrated. Life isn’t so unfair and your job isn’t that unpleasant.

You feel as if you are actually appreciated for the things that you do and without you having to point out ALL of the things that you do.

My daughter just happened to really give me the boost that I needed.

Wait a second….

She did just happen to finish using the potty after having a poo and who was wiping her bum?


Never mind, I’ll take it!

  1. My LO is too young to talk, but one of my god sons yesterday randomly got my attention. Just to tell me he loved me and then went back to his video game. It made my night, I felt incredibly loved!

  2. Take the hugs – take the love – take the words – for there will come a day when that is all forgotten. 😦 xxxx
