Best Mom Ever!
When the boys grumble or complain about something I’ve done or made for them, I usually reply with, “I’m sorry, I think you meant to say, ‘Thanks mom, you’re the best mom ever'”
Yesterday they each said it on their own, in separate instances, without prompting, for something they were genuinely grateful for.
I couldn’t ask for a better reward.
