There are times when I am super surprised by my little one that it takes my breathe away and reaffirms that I am doing a good job as a parent. Because as any parent understands, it can be very difficult raising a child and seeing if you’re doing a good job or not.
I’ve been going through a major change in my life and have been feeling totally lost and I was having a conversation about my future with my husband, while tears were streaming down my face. Our daughter came into the bedroom several time, where we were discussing, to show us a picture she had drew. She would quickly disappear once we had commented on her photo.
Later that night, while tucking her into bed, she asked me why I was crying earlier. I knew she had noticed but I didn’t think she would ask me or even remember to ask. I didn’t really know how to respond but I did finally tell her that I felt really lost about what I wanted to do with my life. She told me I could go to a different school to be a teacher and I had to explain to her that teaching didn’t bring me joy anymore. She gave me other numerous suggestions but they were all geared to what she wanted to do and what my husband did for a living, lol. Bless her heart with her trying to help me. In the middle of this I knew I had to capture this moment and how mature she was so I hit the record bottom on my phone to remember this moment forever and to showcase how amazing our children are.

My mind was blown how such a little person could be so wise beyond her years. I feel at times we give our child the benefit of the doubt and how much they pick up from us and from others, that we tend to dismiss their wisdom. However, they have so much to offer in this world and we can learn a thing or two from them. I thank the Universe (and God) for blessing me with such a great soul.
Please share with me any of your experiences with a child our children in the comments below. I would really love to read about them! – Peace and Love
