Validation from my kids
(Picture from a recent evening power outage)
Scarlett, looking at our wedding photo: Is that you and daddy?
Scarlett: You look like Elsa. That's super beautiful.
Conversation #2, a few days later:
Nevin: That's great, mom!Me, with a tiny bit of sarcasm: Thanks, Nevin.
Nevin: You don't think you are great, but you are.
I know self worth must come from the inside, but sometimes I need praise. And hearing it from my children is just validating and totally heartbreaking.
