Listen earnestly yo anything your children want to tell you, no matter what. If you don't listen eagerly to the little stuff when they are little, they won't tell you the big stuff when the are big, because to them all of it has always been big stuff.
In our house. only hugs, smiles and warm fuzzy feelings are allowed. (remember that little book - all I ever needed to know I learned in Kindergarten =- yeah that is what my baby is learning now -warm fuzzy vs cold prickly).
You are the poem I dreamed of writing, the masterpiece I longed to paint. You are the shining star I reached for in my ever hopeful quest for life fulfilled. You are my child, now with all things I am blessed. ❤️ my daughter❤️
