Little Boys can say the sweetest things to their mothers.
Today, The Boy told me “You have pretty hair, Mommy.” and “You’re doing a really good job, Mommy.”
I wasn’t having a particularly good hair day, so this compliment made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Like most of his sweet words do.
We’ve been encourage him to practice skills that he needs to develop. And, I often tell him that he’s doing a really good job. That I’m proud of him. If he keeps practicing, he’ll be able to do it soon. It’s great to see that he IS listening to what I say – since turning three I’ve questioned his hearing! – and that I am making an impact even more than I know.
What things have your children said to you that melt your heart?
