Moms – From the Eyes of a Seven Year Old

Below are the words of my daughter, age 7. She asked if she could write a blog like I do. I had no idea what to expect, honestly, I didn’t even know what her topic would be. To say I was a bit of a mess upon reading this, goes without saying. However, I’m filing this away for the days I feel like I’ve failed at this whole mom thing. The day I’ve yelled too much, or said no too much, as a reminder of what she see’s. The following words and photos are hers:

Hey my name is Brue, and I have a mom.

She’s very nice. A nice mom has lots of hugs and kisses and a nice heart. I like to go to the movies with Mom. And climbing tress with her is so fun! We take lots of trips, like to Texas! She always lets me play with her hair. She helps me with homework and I like that. We craft a lot, she lets me make messes but also teaches me to clean them up. We drink coffee together. She’s really pretty—on the inside and outside. She thinks amazing stuff. She’s the best mom in the world. 

The important thing about a mom is if you have kids you have to take care of them really well. Making money to buy their food and stuff. She budgets all the time. Teach them to do the right thing & say the right words. That’s what is is to be a great mom. 

Moms are really good at reading stories! Especially reading Harry Potter. 

The favorite thing my mom has ever done with me is whispers at night.

Whispers are whenever we say, “I love you, you’re my best, best friend and [something].”  We do this every night. She always tells me she’s so glad I‘m daughter because God knew just what she needed. And that she loves me, no matter what—there’s nothing I can do to change that & there’s nothing anyone else can do to change that! 

And that’s how great my mom is! 

Sometimes moms get mad & just can’t hold their temper. Then they have to breath and apologize. My mom is really good at that.

And that’s why she’s the best mom in the world.
