I was working on a longer post for today, but things got chaotic, so I’ll have to run it another day. But meanwhile my sister sent me this beautiful post about telling your friends—and even strangers—that they are good mothers. It made me realize that while I’m always admiring my friends’ parenting styles, I rarely say that kind of thing out loud. And it means so much to hear, right?

So to all you mothers out there: You are a wonderful mother. :)

P.S. Six words to say to your child, and do your eyes light up when they walk into the room?
