    Default My mom likes my cards!!!!!

    Woo Hoo!!!!!

    I don't know if I've ever shared this but I am about the most disorganized person you've ever met in your life. Seriously, I've tried every system in the book but when you're living with ADD it's near impossible to keep up with your life in the organization systems.
    Today my mom came over to help me clean. We were going through the tables of messes piled up in my living room and she's looking at some of my cards and she just says "these are really cute. Where'd you get them?" I told her I made them. She couldn't beleive it. I'm so happy. My mom has never ever given me a compliment. Long story short, I'm her disapointment in life. She's super organized and super smart and she's never ever gotten me at all in any way. But she's also dead on creativity and so for her to see me do something creative is kind of a shock for her. But really cool. She couldn't beleive how much scrapbooking stuff I have, and she didn't even see half of it. So I'm just happy that my mom finally saw that I am capable of something, even if she doesn't get it.

    that's great that your mom likes your cards. it's a good thing we don't have to be organized to be creative. (but your post made me a little sad for you, that your mom doesn't get you - I hope that she continues to see what you're capable of)

    I hope your mother starts seeing so much more in you hun!! You ARE a smart person, don't let her make you think otherwise. And a very creative person at that! YAY for her liking your cards. That's a sweet story.

    Ditto what everyone else said!

    I'm so glad she finally popped out a compliment -- I think it's long overdue! You are smart, a good mommy, and a very creative person!

    I can totally relate to the disorganization! Glad your mom was able to say something nice while helping you organize. Now you know what you can give her for a gift!

    Since when do you have to be organized My DH has ADHD so I totally understand what its like Im not organized either and I dont really care unless people are coming over Im really glad that she liked your stuff! Its so hard when we have parents that are harder to please than others, it makes life a little more difficult. I hope that she continues to see how cool you are!
