One of my absolutely favourite things about parenting this little girl is the look she gets on her face when I’ve succeeded in making her feel special.
Tonight I put two small braids in her hair. I had done one in mine to keep the hair out of my face and she came in to go the bathroom and saw it. I quickly did one on one side of her face, the longer side that always hangs into her eyes. She ran to look at it in the mirror and asked me to do one on the other side, so I did.
Her smiled was huge. She glowed.
And I got to make her feel that.
And she makes me feel that too. I took a picture of us the other day and showed it to her.
“Take another one Mommy, and you smile too this time!”
