I'm pretty bad at this. Just ask my family, I'm known for my inability to communicate. They'll all vouch for me on this one. Haha. Needless to say, I want to be able to share stuff with my kids, especially my daughter. It really is a harsh world out there, and I want her to be able to tell me what's bothering her, which somedays seems like an inordinately large amount of stuff.
Well, I found something to help.
When I can't seem to get my message [of love, of frustration, of joy, or whatever] through, I can write it down. We're both good at that. She's always leaving me notes...
A normal mom would listen instead of staring at the STUPID computer!
That's a true story... Oops. I'm not perfect, but she does know I love her, most of the time. And that's the most important message of all. So, I've committed to at least one email a week, just to say I love you.
What do you do for your kids? I want to know!
