I love LISTS and I love things being organized in box-type containers. A TEN THINGS list is like that! I enjoy writing things in a structured, contained way. You will find links to all the TEN THINGS posts at the end of each. ENJOY!
I do notice, Mommy, when you are too busy to stop and be with me. I miss you! I know that you have lots to do – I can do it with you if you slow down and include me.
I do notice, Mommy, when you smile at me.
I do notice, Mommy, when you sing me a song and bounce me on your knee.
I do notice, Mommy, when you are grumpy and cross. It makes me sad.
I do notice, Mommy, when you stop what you are doing and read to me. I love it when you take me on your lap and we read a story together.
I do notice, Mommy, when you ask somebody else to take care of me because you have other things to do.
I do notice, Mommy, when you hug and kiss Daddy – I like it!
I do notice, Mommy, when you sit at the computer for a long time and can’t talk to me. I have so much I want to share with you.
I don’t notice when the house is not perfectly clean and tidy! My feelings of joy, peace or grumpiness come straight from your heart to mine.
I do notice, Mommy, when you stop what you are doing and look carefully at the picture that I have drawn or the flower that I have brought you. I love it when you treasure my gifts to you.
I do notice, Mommy, when you get down on my level – when you come sit behind the couch with me in my little “tent” and play house. Those are the special times I remember.
I need you, Mommy and I love you! Please don’t be too busy for me.
“For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap [their] hands.” Isaiah 55 v 12
