The couch cushions littered the "in-need-of-a-vacuuming" floor, and Lilly and Camren were fighting like boxing kangaroos over a puzzle piece. My sweet newborn babe was throwing a "feed-me-now" fit in her bright pink bouncy chair. I looked at the spectacle before me and felt myself start to lose my cool.
I looked at my clicker.
I looked at my kids.
And suddenly everything changed. I saw my sassy daughter with the toothless grin, holding her own against her energetic brother. I saw my son, with the dark brown eyes and the "mitts" like puppy-dog paws. I saw turned-up noses and black eyelashes and freckles on knees, and children who are growing and changing too quickly. I saw my baby--fresh out of heaven--and smiled at her perfect baby toes.
Positive thought #43: I am a mother.
When singer, songwriter, speaker, and "all around cool chick," Hilary Weeks contacted several bloggers about her "clicker project," I KNEW I had to get involved. "Clicking" is an experiment in the power of positive thinking. Think a good, positive thought, then acknowledge it with a click from a tally counter; a clicker.
I received my adorable and cheery clicker kit a couple of weeks ago. I couldn't wait to get clicking! I took my clicker everywhere: to Sephora, to Cam's preschool, to the grocery store, and OH MY GOSH!, to my OB-GYN's office! My clicker sat on my dresser, on my kitchen counter, on my dashboard. I loved counting my happy thoughts. I clicked for blue skies and fluffy clouds. I clicked for good books and uplifting music. I clicked for Diet Coke, peanut M&Ms, prayer, my parents, and my baby's smile. As I clicked, I found myself feeling better, happier, lighter.
