She drew on the mirror with yogurt.” That’s what I told my husband the other day. I bet that you can guess that I am a mom! Mother’s Day is approaching, so I thought that it would be appropriate to share six things that I am learning from my six-year old.
- Play in the mud and rain puddles.
My daughter doesn’t really care if she gets mud on her clothes. Life is messy. I am learning that it can be fun to play in the mess!
- Smell the flowers, even if you’re in a hurry.
My daughter doesn’t rush around everywhere like I do, and she absolutely loves to smell flowers. She reminds me to slow down and enjoy the moment!
- Always forgive.
No matter how many times I have to say, “I’m sorry”, my daughter is always quick to forgive me. I am learning that forgiveness can be a remedy for bitterness.
- Be silly.
My daughter can find humor in almost anything. She makes me want to laugh more!
- Tell people what you need.
My daughter always asks for help and is very helpful to others. I am learning that it is better to ask for help than to overexert myself.
- Make friends wherever you go.
My daughter likes to greet everyone that she sees. I am learning that it is nice to connect with someone new, even if it is only for a moment.
