Some Of The Best Compliments Come from Kids

I remember the best conversation I had with my son.

When my son was in grade school, he invited me to see his school play. I took the afternoon off and sat down next to a friend of mine. When Levi saw me, he smiled at me. I didn’t realize Levi had a small singing part in the play. What a great voice(I think the other children sang well also). That evening Levi and I went out for dinner and to the toy store at the mall.

One morning, Levi came out of his bedroom and made my day. He told me” mom, you always come to my plays, take me to the spaghetti feed and book fair at school. When we go somewhere, you always look nice. you have makeup, wear nice clothes not  sweats with holes in them.You don;t wear big sweatshirts with paint on it. Your hair looks nice not in a greasy ponytail like some mothers.” What a nice feeling. As a single parent to my young son, I tried to keep myself up because it is important to me. That day, I realized our kids watch us more than we think they do.
