I never wanted to be one of those parents who just goes on and on and on about their kids and their accomplishments because everyone is proud of their kids and wants to share them with the world. However, there was something that happened today that I just had to share.
I got home this evening and found this in Logan’s folder…
After reading this my heart did a little flip flop and in my head I was doing a cheer, waving my pom poms and attempting the splits without tearing my muscles in half. As a parent I like to celebrate even the smallest victories around here. I realize that there will be so many times parenting isn’t easy and so many times my kids will hate me and I probably won’t like them much either. Knowing this has allowed me to be happy with these small accomplishments and let my kids know how proud I am of them know matter how small the feat.
Logans greatest qualities have often been a struggle for us as parents and it makes me so proud to see how well he does around other kids and adults. My once shy, cautious and nervous baby has blossomed into a joking, well spoken, smart ladies man. I’m thankful the things that we have taught him have actually stuck with him and that he is applying his good manners at school. Don’t get me wrong I never doubted him….I’ve always doubted myself and my ability to be a good parent.
No matter what my Logan man does in his life I know in my heart and with all of my being he is a GOOD kid. He is a special, special gift that was given me and even through the mistakes he might make and the people he might let down he will always touch other people in his own special way. He will make a difference in this world and no matter what he will ALWAYS make me dust off the pom poms to do a little cheer!
I love you my big monster….
Hoping I still make my parents proud every day…..
