Motivation for Moms – Appreciation

Show your children that you appreciate them by doing something special just for them, like making their favorite meal, or taking them out for an ice cream.

Now that I have two kids and that they are growing up, I take them to the playground everyday where they can play all they want. I know this is what they want right now. Aside from that, we also go to Jollibee or McDonalds at least once a month to celebrate little victories or simply spend some quality time. Sometimes, we also buy stickers and other little things as a gift or reward.

During their birthdays and other special times, I created some letters for them. I keep it along with the baby scrap book I have made for each of them. So that when they are big enough to understand, I can give it to them. Also I am making sure that I tell them how much I love them every day.

How about you? Share with us how you show your children that you appreciate them.

I really love it when Kyla embraces me and tells me she loves me. I love it that she knows her limits. I love the way she can express herself through art works and drawings. I see that even at a young age, she is a leader. I love the way she can make a stand about something.

I love how sweet Toby is. He hugs me every now and then. I love his optimism and how he always wants to make us smile and laugh at his antics. I love his good natured-ness. I love his adventurous nature and not being afraid to try new things.

How about you? What do you love about your kids?
