You know when you’ve done something right, as a parent,when…..
Your little girl says, ” I like spending time with you “.
Sometimes, you wonder if you’ve done enough to be a good parent. You try your best to be the “book perfect” parent – model good behaviour, trying to keep calm when things go awry (though this rarely happens), being a good listener, being a good cheerleader, being a good teacher, provider, caretaker, nurse…..the list goes on and on. Yeah, but nothing ever quite measure up, most of the time.
So, it’s a wonderful surprise, when your little girl rests her head on your shoulder at the kitchen table and suddenly, uttering those very words, that you know deep inside that you’ve got that special something. And that makes motherhood one awesome journey!
