Mom I am very mad right now. Mom I am scared, mom I am sad.... Mom I am so happy!!
Being a mom has taught me many things and listening to my boys when they tell me how they feel is the most important thing I ever learned. Sometimes they don't tell me and I have to watch for signs. For examples Brandon Jr pulls up his shirt and starts to chew on the collar when he is nervous. Quinn starts to bounce around when he get annoyed. And they both get blank looks on their face when their feelings are hurt. Sometimes they try to hide their feelings, but as their mama I try to explain it is okay to feel these things. No one needs to be happy all the time.
This is why I love the Moodsters The Moodsters, a first-of-its-kind brand of emotional intelligence (EQ) offerings and educational toys and books, has just launched a new extension to its current lineup nationwide on ToysRUs.com.
