Amazing, just the way you are.   Leave a comment

My last post for today. Earlier today I was changing my little one’s diaper, and I sang the lyrics to Bruno Mars’ Just the Way You Are. I left out the “girl” part though and sang “Because you’re amazing, just the way you are.” He smiled and coo’d and I loved every minute of it. My babies are truly amazing just the way they are. They will always be amazing, no matter which roads they take in life. I loved that I’ve realized that.

Some of you may think that all moms believe their children are amazing just the way they are and that it’s an inherent trait that us moms have, but that’s not true. There were many times where my own mother and father did not think I was amazing just the way I was…and they let that be known. I was put down more than a kid should be, and I was called every bad name in the book by my parents…including the dreaded “c” word by my Dad. I’ll NEVER EVER call my children any of those names. I’ll never make them feel like they are not amazing and that they do not live up to my standards. I never want them to feel the way I felt for 13 plus years of my life.

So, my sweet boys, you will always be AMAZING, just the way you are!

All the best,
Someone’s mom
