Notice the AMAZING

Since the first day our youngest was born, we've told her (and anyone who will listen) how AMAZING she is. This has had a profound affect on my older children in regards to anything the baby does. They really do find her absolutely amazing, whether she's smiling, walking, messing her pants (and her clothes and our clothes and the floor), or spitting up all over. (See here for a blog post I wrote about this.)

It's our attitude that counts.

So I've decided to put more effort into pointing out all the amazing things all my children do. But why stop there? What about my spouse, my sister, my friends? What about myself? Let's sit up and NOTICE THE AMAZING. I believe if we do this, we will see a lot more amazing things going on.

Love to hear from you if you do!

  1. What a great reminder! Thank you for posting this! I also love that you included to see the amazing in ourselves. It's so much easier to see it in others, but very hard to see ourselves as amazing. Thank you!
    ps: I LOVE your books!

  3. Don't they always say that kids should get 8 positive comments for every criticism from their parents? I often wonder how different so many lives would be if they got a little more positive feedback. This is a great goal!

  4. Thank you for the reminder. It is all a matter of perspective. My sister and I were talking about my husband the other day and she said, "You'd think he was cute if he farted." I laughed because he does do some of that and I don't think it's cute, but I really do want to focus on all the great things he and my boys do. If you look for good you will find it.
    Thanks again,
    Cami
