LOVE is in the Details

" Every mother loves to button up her child's clothing and kiss his face," I assured my son after he had once again buttoned his shirt askew and come to me in despair. Beatrix Potter / Peter Rabbit & Mum So, several years later, he still comes to me for buttoning, though sometimes he cries, “Stop kissing me!” with a big smile on his little face.   He comes, not because he cannot button, but because he likes the care and attention I bestow on him at that moment. We each choose what is important, and we each choose different things. I decorate differently every month!   Flags, designs in the front windows for the month’s holiday theme, towels with cute pictures, tablecloths, placemats, pot holders, and even one wall where we put up the month’s name and past and present drawings, cards, cute calendar pictures, etc.   Our wall of the month. I give snacks in little, but heavy, crystal bowls – even to 5 year olds!
