Love List

Tonight was a struggle. No kids thought it was a good idea to listen. I yelled more in one night than I usually do in a month. I am not proud of that. So...I have decided to make a top 3 list for each kid what I love most about them.
1. Tenderhearted
2. Helpful
3. Determined

1. Goofy
2. Devoted Friend
3. Giving

1. Inquisitive
2. Polite

1. Loveable
2. Sensitive
3. Momma's Boy

2. Happy
3. Snuggly

Ahhh...I feel better already. Now I can go up kiss all their foreheads while they are sleeping and thank God for a fresh start tomorrow. Isn't it amazing how children are so forgiving? I love my kids. But sometimes I just need a reminder.

Awwww, I love this and I love that you did this! What an awesome thing to do when we're having a rough day :) Love you!

Great idea! Those days are hard...and I only have 2 kids...only one of which I raise my voice at. =) It is so hard to be positive in the heat of the moment. What a great way to remind yourself at the end of the day, how much you love them and why!

You are on the front lines of the battle, Mamasita...and that is not a tongue-in-cheek comment. You are warring daily for your precious five...they will learn so much from your repentant and thankful heart. I'm a broken record: You are an amazing mom. xo
