What Do You Love About Your Kids?

A couple weeks ago, I found myself complaining about child support (or the lack thereof) and just how many expenses Aiden has and just how much money I dish out every month.

But that wasn't exactly helping my mood. So I decided to count my blessing instead.

Here's the thing: I love Aiden. I'm blessed to have him in my life. I'm blessed to be called his mother. And he's... amazing!

There are so many things that I love about Aiden. I love that he's...

Smart and witty and a great critical thinker.

Sweet and caring.

Loving to his friends and wants them to be happy.

Happy to go to school and gets excited about learning new things. (It makes the tuition totally worth it, even with the lack of child support).

Concerned about my thoughts and feelings. He often says, "Mommy, are you happy at me or sad at me?" (I think it's so cute when he says this.)

A resilient little boy who continues to learn the power of persevering each and every day.

A terrible person to co-sleep with, but wants to be close to me at night and almost always reaches out and touches me in his sleep.

Funny. And says things like this: "You don't have rest time at your job to take a NAP? But... but... how 'bout if you get sleepy?"

A total trooper! He wakes up super early every morning because I have to get to work super early. He totally goes with my flow with a warm heart and a smile on his face.

A total rockstar!

Count some blessings with me. What do you love about your kids?


  1. Aww.. what a sweet post! I love that my kids love me unconditionally. For me being loved for who I am is something I've always sought because I often felt like I wasn't. Likewise, I'm making it my mission to love them for who they are and just as unconditionally.

  2. You have such a great attitude to count your blessings to lift your mood - I have to remind myself of that sometimes when I'm in a funk and it does help to get me out of it!

  3. aww love this post! :) I love Liam's laugh, his smile and his independent nature. I'm sure the latter will cause us trouble in the future lol, but I just look at him in amazement sometimes I can't believe someone so wonderful is really in MY life!


I love reading what you have to say!
