SOLSC Day 10: Top 10 Lists

Okay, so since I’ve had a very hard, emotional week I felt I needed to lighten up the mood a bit today and decided to come up with some Top 10’s in my life! I feel that my three most important jobs I have are being a Mom, A wife, and an Educator. Today, I will share the top 10 things about each. 🙂

  1. Cuddling on the couch reading books before bed
  2. Hugs and kisses and unconditional love.
  3. Listening to him tell stories about his day and how excited he gets.
  4. Listening to him read on his own.
  5. The display of artwork around my house.
  6. The notes, cards and post Its he writes to me telling me he loves me.
  7. Dance parties in the kitchen.
  8. That everyday I am amazed as I witness him becoming his own little person.
