You Remind Me…

Sometimes in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, I can get overwhelmed, frustrated and even a little snappy. I feel guilty that I raised my voice or put you in that time out. I wonder if I’m doing anything right at all.

But, then you remind me


It’s in the way you gently hold your baby doll.

It’s in the way you run to hug your brother and sister every morning.

It’s in the way you hold your daddy’s hand.

It’s in the way you kiss my tummy and say hello to baby.

It’s in the way you stroke my hair as I lay with you for a nap.

It’s in the way you sing itsy bitsy spider to calm your sister down.

It’s in the way you rub your brothers back when he’s crying.

It’s in the way you say hello to everyone we meet.

It’s in the way you smile.

All the little things you do, remind me that I am doing this mommy thing right. I may not be perfect, but I am teaching you the most important thing. To LOVE 🙂

    So true! Loved this 🙂 I feel guilty over half of the time. I get the occasional… “you are a mean mom..” from the 5 year old that thinks she’s 21. But then 2 minutes later she comes crawling in my lap and saying how much she loves me. They definitely remind us 🙂 You are a wonderful 3 and a half!!
