It seems that a lot of moms don't feel appreciated for all that they do. I, fortunately, don't feel that way. I'm very lucky to have a really cute, thoughtful little boy. Scotty thanks me all the time for the things that I do. He thanks me for cooking meals for him, he thanks me for cleaning- especially for cleaning "his" bathroom, he thanks me for doing his laundry, and there is a lot more that he thanks me for. He thanked me one night when I went into his room and told him it was time to go to sleep! "Thank you for telling me, Mommy. Thank you." The best is when he thanked Miles for taking him to time-out!! It is so cute and makes me so happy- even after cleaning "his" disgusting toilet!! And he loves to help me do chores around the house. He loves to vacuum with me, help me clean bathrooms, dust, unload the dishwasher, do laundry and he especially loves to cook. The other day he said, out of the blue, that someday we are going to help him learn to use the stove! And I just know that all this thankfulness and helpfulness will continue on even throughout the teenage years!
