How a child can instantly make you feel like a million bucks…

For those that know me…you know this week was tougher than most…van insurance nightmares, an email that made me want to pack up and not blog anymore and just the overall sense of malaise that was upon me. I was just glad that I switched to One Sure Insurance.

BUT, there is NOTHING like a sweet innocent comment from a child to brighten your day, week….hell, it made my year!

I was buckling my son into his car seat and he’s starring at me. I smile. He smiles.

And then he says….

“Mom, you’re pretty”

As if he had just discovered this.

A million bucks folks, that’s how I felt…with a kid like that, who could have down days? (of course there are time when I get the “I HATE you!” or “Stop it!” when I go in for a kiss and god forbid interrupt a sponge bob marathon. {insert a rolling of the eyes here})

But, that right there, those three words, that made all that garbage of my very bad week, “poof!” disappear!

Thanks Kid!


  1. Awwww, I love it! Cameron is very in tune with you. First, you are pretty. Second, he knows when momma needs some warm fuzzies! xoxox

  2. last time my mother seem so happy when i get good result in examination, not when i give her present or what.. she seem happier when I succeed in life rather than when she got something.

    now you know there is always someone will cheer you up even how tough your day is.. :D

  6. Awww…what a sweet kid. Have a great weekend!

  7. Sarah, I’m so sorry you’ve had a rough week. I’ve had similar struggles this week, and it really weighs you down. But man those kids can brighten you up like no other. Moanna looks at me sometimes and goes, “Mommy you’re so cute.” MELT. It really makes my heart melt when she stops everything and lets me know that I’m special to her.

    Hang in there. Big Mommy Blogger HUG!
