one of my fave quote from Storypeople:
“there has never been a day i have not been proud of you, I said to my kids, though some days i’m louder about other stuff so its easy to miss that…”
and today i want to say something about that, mainly because i feel that these days i always seem to be yelling
or growling (like my daughter would say) about one thing or another…so i just want to take one day to say
how proud i am of my daughter and how much i appreciate her in my life…
this morning as i struggle to wake up i saw Claudia slide into bed beside me because daddy has just gone to work…
she was already armed with her writing pad and her glittery pens at 7am in the morning.
i managed to squint and lift one eye open as i saw her scribbling into her writing pad.
as i was dozing off she touched my shoulder and ask me “mummy i made a song for you, do you want me to sing it?”
i was still half asleep so i said “that’s nice honey, but Logan is still asleep so can you please wait until we go downstairs
then you can sing it to me while we have breakfast…”
about half an hour later i finally gave up my attempt to catch a quick snooze and we went downstairs for breakfast…
of course she wasted no time to sing me her song which she created specially for me….and do you know what the song is about?
its about how much we wanted to complete our family with her having a brother and she wrote in the end that now we’ve got a family…
isn’t she the most thoughtful, loving and talented lil girl?
her other fave thing is of course is making cards and drawings…our house is full of them.
she uses a LOT of papers and usually her creations involves almost an entire roll of sticky tape (cello tape) but of course
those cards and drawings meant a lot to her so we have to keep it safe (along with a gazillion other stuff that she makes daily LOL).
I know shouldn’t complain because it is very sweet to have your daughter showers you with attention and showing how much she loves us…
like yesterday when she came home from the park with nana with a handful of flowers picked specially for mummy…
awww, seriously sweet rite? btw, if anyone asked who is that kid that keeps on picking random flowers in the park,
just act like you know nothing of it… LOL
and get this, sometimes when im tired and i complain that my body is sore she offered me a back rub to make me feel better….
if only daddy is quite that forthcoming with his back rub offers! LOL she put a lot of effort to her back rub too,
she even uses my massage oil and doing the little chopping motion at the end.
“howz that feel mummy? do you feel better now?” she asked after a couple of mins. ”
“ohh that feels so much better sweetie, thank you so much!”
come one now, what mum in the world is not touched with her daughter’s thoughtfulness like that?
she also gave me another thoughtful gift the other day….made specially of a toilet paper roll and cotton buds,
surely by now you cannot deny her creative talent….and she also made a drawing of our family eventho her proportion size
might need adjusting a bit because for some reason a picture of Logan is somewhat bigger than hers
and seeing that Logan is still a baby a lot smaller than her you can say the picture is a bit misleading LOL
Yes, there is nothing like a gift from your child to remind you that it really is the little things and the thought that counts.
check out the song she wrote this morning about our family…
and these are our collection of cards, drawings, notes that she made for us from all around the house…
the drawing she made of us and her toilet roll creation…lol
and of course we can’t forget the flowers she hand-picked specially for mummy…
this last note was for my mum…Claudia wrote it a couple of weeks ago and she wants us to mail it to Oma, but god knows how long it takes
to send mails to Jakarta these days, so im taking a picture of the note specially for my mum so she knows how much Claudia misses her…
