If you're new to the 31 day series, over 1200 bloggers have chosen a theme they want to write about every day in October ranging from food or fashion to faith or fabric. See the whole list at The Nester. I decided to focus on trying to be a better mom, and you can see my first post here.
Day 7: Compliments
Everyone loves to hear nice things, right? And I figure my kids are no different. I don't know that I need to falsely inflate their self esteem, but for at least this one day, I have made an effort to flood them each with compliments.
I've been looking for the obvious: "I love that drawing, you are very artistic"
to the stretches: "You did a good job getting your own pickle out of the jar"
It's been kind of fun and I hope they're enjoying it!
