Last week, I wrote a post called: My Toddler Doesn’t Love Me.
Of course, I know that my toddler does in fact love me, and it was confirmed today when he said, “You’re the best mom in the whole wide world — you are the best egg and toast maker!”
If you could hear the way he pronounces world (war-ward), your heart would swell three times (Grinch-style), trust me!
At 38-weeks-pregnant, and on the verge of an emotional and physical meltdown, hearing my kid tell me that my skills in the art of egg and toast preparation makes me the best mom in the whole wide world, well, it pretty much made my whole week.
It is so easy sometimes, as parents, to feel like we aren’t doing everything just right. I mean, personally, I often feel like I’m not doing anything right.
You may be stressed because you can’t spend the time you want with your children, or that they aren’t eating the perfect healthy diet, or that age three is creeping dangerously close, and pooping and peeing in the potty still seems more like a dream than a reality.
No matter where you feel you are failing, I’ll bet you are still the best mom in the whole wide world.
I’ll bet you make a mean PB&J sandwich, or that you read the best bedtime stories.
You probably do a million-and-one things just right in the eyes of your child, and if you aren’t taking a moment to bask in that glory… you should.
So, what makes you the best mom in the whole wide world? Tell me in the comments!
