    Every child is different. I showed my parents through physical affection, but mostly by
    Doing lots of chores, especially extra ones to make their lives easier.

    My DD isn't that way...
    She shows it through physical, and verbal. Lots and lots of I love you's, hugs and kisses.
    She also draws us in her homework projects and talks about us sweetly at school and to family.
    (Everyone knows she's loved!)

    Whatever a child does "extra" of, shows their love. If it's notes and letters or chores or just extra hugs it's appreciated! The best thing I can think of is respecting the rules and behaving correctly. Everyone makes mistakes, but the less grief they give us the more we know we're doing a decent job!

    Thank you FlyGap, I greatly appreciate your answers!
    I think my parents miss my letters that I wrote when I was little. I kinda stopped because I thought it was "childish" *laugh*, I guess parents still like them though!

    P.S. She sounds sooooo cute!=) =)

    Katie, my 2.5 year old and I eat breakfast together when I get home from a shift at the firehouse. She has gotten to a point where she won't eat until I'm home and lately she will want to hold my hand while we eat . That and she will be playing and just get up and walk over and hug my leg or want me to bend down for a kiss. I love that after being gone for 24 or more hours. breanne my 6 month old just gives me the biggest smile and giggle. That's pretty good to.

    Awww! That sounds as if those small things with your kids are the highlights of your day!

    They are. I used to love working 24 hour shifts. Now that I have kids I still love my job but don't love being gone for 24 hours at a time like I used to. But overall those shift actually give me more time overall with the girls.

    The words my mother loved to hear was, "Mom, I'll do that".
