Have you seen the “You’re Doing OK, Mom!” commercial? Knot in my throat! How amazing would it be to know what our babies are thinking or would be able to say? My littlest guy is turning 2 this weekend and he is slowly telling me what he really wants! Having my three boys express their emotions is exciting. Especially when they don’t hold back. Kids keep it real!
Inspired by the commercial, Hubby started to talk to the boys about this upcoming Mother’s Day. He asked our oldest, Diego, to jot down a few things he would like me to know (!). Like most mothers, we don’t give ourselves enough credit and I was sure Diego would write that I should tone it down a bit (I raise my voice a lot), that I should be more fair, and that I shouldn’t be so boring. Most days, I personally feel I can’t get anything right. There are so many things to keep up with and I think the boys notice. I know a lot of moms understand. We try. We really do.
If you look at Diego’s note above, you will see that he thinks I’m great because I make yummy food. He also thinks it’s awesome that I buy him toys. He thinks I’m great because I love him. Oh, if he only knew how much. Love–if I do that really well, I am doing OK, don’t you think?
