There's usually a lot of talk about the "darndest" things kids say, and all the little embarrassing moments. But they do say the most wonderful things sometimes too. This is just a post to share a moment that I thought was really great.
My oldest, who is 8, likes to do craft and lately she's been doing some really great stuff with paper. I often do craft myself and recently did a wedding invitation for a friend of mine. Everyone loved it, including my 8 year old, but I didn't know how much of an impact it had on her. The other day I walked in on her just sitting, looking at the invitation. She was scrutinizing it very closely and when I walked in I smiled at her. She looked up at me and said, "You know mommy, your work always inspires me."
I was floored. She said it with such a matter-of-fact expression that all I could think of was to give her a hug and say, simply, "thank you honey."
Who could ask for something more precious? Needless to say I feel like super mom right now. lol.
