So yesterday I took my daughter out for our alone time (my husband and I try to take each kid out once or twice a month for one on one time, nothing fancy in fact last night we just went shopping a few places) and we were looking through a sale rack when this woman approached me. She seemed a little older, like she'd been here, and she said to me -
"are you mom"?
I was taken a little off gaurd but I smiled and said "Yes, I am"
She smiled back and said "You are fabulous. I mean it, you are doing a really great job with her. You should be proud of yourself as a mother."
I was STUNNED! I mean, that was the highlight of my week, maybe my month! In my book there aren't many higher compliments. It got me to thinking, how often does this happen? Not often enough! It feels great to be recognized, pass the favor and empower a fellow under appreciated mother in arms. :-P
Has this ever happened to you before or have you ever recognized a strange mother working hard for her kids? Share your story!
P.S. Bump the post ladies, you know you want to. :-)

i havent been stopped at a store but my new neighbors came to me when i got home the one day and told me how polite, respectful and helpful my kids were. :) they had just moved in and were building a patio out back and both my kids volunteered themselves to help.
