For the last two days my oldest son Liam (3 1/2) has been telling me how proud of me he is. I fix his transformer - "I am so proud of you." I make him lunch - "Mama, I am so proud of you." I go to the bathroom - "Good job Mama! I am so proud of you!" It's funny that it really does make me feel special. (Writing this makes me think that I might be a touch needy). I am hoping that he is saying this to me because he hears it a lot. I hope that he feels as good about himself when I say it as I feel when he says it to me.
