I love the way many moms today are keeping track of their parenting days by writing love letters to their kids online. Some moms choose to write to their children on their birthdays, others on ordinary days. Either way, I love this trend and this particular note to "Kid A" from Journey Mama. Are you writing to your kids directly on your blog? Leave us your links in the comments below.
Other points of happiness, mom of brand new kindergarten Amelia Lee, posted this adorable picture and post about how it feels to be a big girl going to school. I love the way kids (like Amelia pictured above) express their pride in their accomplishments and how moms (like Jen) aren't afraid to get all into the glow.
Sheryl from Paper Napkin writes this week about how a pep talk about resilience and not being afraid to ask for what you want creates just the right atmosphere for her son to shine. I especially loved how her little guy saw her nudge as proof positive that he was deeply loved.
And what would happen if you showed your kids this video (warning: there's kissing! ewwww!) and then invited them to be a part of sending something lovely to the filmmakers? Check it out and see what you think. Personally, I can't think of a better way to get your kids interested in a worldwide community project that clearly has a heart.
