Better Mom Day 9: Special Note (and Halloween Mantel)
This little table in my entry is the spot that always gets dressed up for holidays. For Halloween it has some painted screens, a glittered dollar store skull, a BOO sign across the mirror and of course spider webs.
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 9: Special Note
Today I decided I would write letters to each of the girls and leave them on the door for them to find when they got home from school. I told them things I was proud of, things that I liked doing with them, etc. For the youngest, since he can't read, I wrote a couple of little things on post-it notes and them stuck them to his shirt. I told him what they said after he laughed about how silly I was being. That was the best part :)
