Pick a New Favorite

I know all moms love to brag about their kids, but my daughter, Chloe, is pretty special.

This week her favorite balloon from her birthday party floated away to the skies. Her brother (and most normal kids) cried. Chloe, on the other hand, turned to me and said, “I guess I’ll find a new favorite.”

If only all of us (me included) were so wise. There was nothing Chloe could do to get that balloon back, so instead of harping what she lost, she focused on what she still had.

So today, take a page from my six-year-old. Find your new favorites in what you already have. I bet you have more than you even realized. #parenting
