Monkey See

My little monkeys

My little monkeys

I’m hard on myself. The times when I actually feel like a good mom are few and far between. But there are always some redeeming moments to celebrate. I was blessed with two of those moments today while looking after my friend’s daughters.

One when Sofia came up to her friend after her friend had finished on the potty and patted her back saying, “Good job! I’m so proud of you!”.  And another when she hugged her other little friend who was crying out for her mom and said, “it’s okay sweetie, mommy back soon.”.

If she can be so loving, sweet and kind, I must be doing something right. Monkey see, monkey do.

Admittedly, I also frequently hear, “mommy, play right now!”. But I’m not focusing on that right now.
