spt




photo by jack (6 years old):
i love you because you are my mom.

exactly what i needed to hear this morning. i spend a lot of time obsessing that i'm not a great mom, not the best mom. the message from jack is loud and clear in it's simplicity: the mom in me is doing okay.

Lelly, you probably don't know me but I have been lurking your blog and doing my own SPTs for awhile. I love that you came up with this way to blog anyway....

I think that photo shows off your very cute lips. They have a nice shape. I could go on but you are only suppose to mention one thing right??

So simple and true. You do have great lips!

The total acceptance and love of a child is truly incredible and comforting.

Emmanuelle said...

It's so lovely to heard those words from your child !!! I sure that it is what all moms would love to heard.

Jenny said...

I was just thinking, man I should have gotten ready for mine. The first thing I noticed was your cute bracelet. Did you make it?

We ALL need to hear that from our kids. So sweet.

Hello stranger! I wondered what your expression was about when you popped up on my screen. I thought, 'Ooh, blimey, what's up with El Lellski?' But you're fiiiine!

Love the 'child's angle'. We forget what we must look like to a little person, towering over them. You've got a kind face, Lelly. And a great little man in Jack. His simple, honest sentiments are a reflection on how well you're bringing him up. xx

How is it that our kids have the power to make everything ok with us when it's supposed to be the other way around?

Shawna said...

Hi there, I found your blog on one of my friends blog and I have started to do your challenges...hope that is ok. I have just started this so I am a newbie. I wanted to say thanks for having such a great site that keeps me coming back.

michelle said...

Wonderful! Just what we all want to hear. Strange how such a little reassurance from our children can go such a very long way. And I totally agree with whoever it was who said you have a kind face!
