I’m realizing now- more than ever- how important it is for my kids to know that I love them. I mean really know.
Sure, I tell them.
Yes, I show them.
But the world seems to erode their confidence in so many ways–from peers who don’t share their values to the social pressures that insist they aren’t enough.
I want our home to be safe, a place of unconditional love. I want them to know why they are loved.
When I saw these big 20×13 posters (they have a sticky back for a door or wall!) at Paper Coterie I knew that this would speak to my kids. I can’t wait to give them for Christmas!
[I took a picture of mine…they turned out great. I’m going to put them in an expensive poster frame].
