Blooming Rose

Rose at play - Here she is at the bookmaking class I taught for an after-school volunteer thing.

"Butterfly" by Rose

I just have to share some wonderful news about my daughter, Rose.

I am so proud of her. She has won two achievements in art this year already, and I just found out she won the state competition for an art piece she created back in January. I could not be more proud of our little artist. And she’s only FIVE.

Rose also loves to write (I am beaming). She couldn’t get enough of the bookmaking class I volunteered to teach for a special after-school activity. You can find one of her books she made at home on our Potato Bug Press website — I gave Rose her own page, and there you can see more of her artwork.

I sure have learned an important lesson as a parent. Once you realize what your child is good at, shower the child with praise. Show enthusiasm. I know it sure was important to me when I was growing up. I’m also learning that it is never too young to enter them in little contests. I am so happy for Rose to see her beginning to decorate her rooms with certificates and ribbons. It is such a joy to watch your child excel in something.

Sending out a blessing to all parents out there. May your child be showered with praise and enthusiasm.

Every kid has a super power of some kind  🙂
