Compliments...given and received

1. This wraps up the rules of the award I got from Cris at GOODEness Gracious. A compliment given and passed on.The Rules:
*Thank the blogger who awarded it to you.
(Thank you Cris!)
*Sum up your blogging philosophy, motivation, and experience using five (5) words.
(Pie, Husband, our life together - that was hard!)
*Pass it on to 10 other blogs which you feel have real substance.
C's Mommy at A Mommy's Dreams About Diapers and More
Chelsea at Adventures in Vandyland
Kayla at and Potato Makes Three!
Casey at Aubut Life
Erin at Dropped Stitches
Grace at Finley and Oliver
Elsie at Little Sprout Growing
Maria at Mom et al
Sam at Mom. Undecided
Rachel at The House of Burks

If you haven't checked all these fantastic blogs out, please take a minute and do so. Each is wonderful in its own unique way, and well worth the follow.

2. Pie and I were out running errands on Saturday. At Target, which I alternate between cursing and longing for, people stopped us in nearly every aisle. This doesn't usually happen, but little Pie was so happy and chatty that she was drawing lots of attention. Everyone who stopped us had lovely and kind things to say. About half of them had to ask whether Pie was a boy or girl first though. I would have thought the hot pink tank top was a clue...

3. I saw a family friend this weekend for the first time since Pie was born. I remarked that I still couldn't believe I was someone's mother. His response was, "I can. You were supposed to be someone's mom, and the world is a better place because you are." I wanted to cry. It was such a sweet thing to say, and such a boost when I'm not always sure about my parenting.

What about you guys? Any great compliments lately? Or comments that just made your day?

I talk, then you talk, and sometimes I talk back again. It's a conversation! And we can all pretend we're not internet shut-ins who never talk to anyone. Hooray!
