six little words

ava's silouette

if you have ever been, seen, or known an adolescent girl
well, you know that it’s a challenging time

a sweet older man complimented Ava in the grocery store
He was impressed with her manners and confidence
(these can be in short supply at times)
He smiled and said, “You’re doing a great job mom”

if he only knew how much I needed to hear that
this parenting gig is hard for sure
most of the time I feel like I’m getting at least part of it all wrong

but to all the parents out there
you’re doing a great job!
you don’t let your daughter buy the trashy Halloween costume- great job!
you count to ten after your child rolls her eyes- great job!
you cook dinner and help with homework after a long day instead of binge watching Netflix- great job!
you sign two checks and three forms in the car line while teaching a life lesson- great job!

fill in the blank but be sure to add great job at the end!
we all need to hear that more!
