You did good kid – the importance of being proud

As you know, Love Bug’s drawings are coming along in leaps and bounds. Literally. People have legs to leap and bound with now, where before they may have just been faces, or heads with arms.

Last night she was proudly showing me her latest batch of drawings.

She was sitting at the little table in her bedroom. I was kneeling beside her. I grabbed her hands and turned her to face me. You know what Love Bug? Your drawing is wonderful, but I think in the last couple of weeks it has become A-MAZ-ING {at which point I threw my arms up in the air}.

Her response?

She leapt out of her chair, threw her arms around me. Thank you mumma, I love it too!

It’s important to be proud of our little people, to instil a sense of pride and achievement in them. It’s also important to acknowledge the good parenting moments. That was one of them!

You did good kid.
