It's easy to get caught up in the dizzying affects of our busy day to day lives, but it's important to take a step back and take notice of the little things that can bring a smile to your face. If you take a second to notice you will see that your little ones give you reason to smile all day long, every day.
My daughter Marissa does not like to go to sleep, and when I say she doesn't like it I mean she would rather have all her baby teeth pulled with no Novocain. Ok, that might be a little bit of an embellishment, but you get the point. She will put on her best crying act, scream and yell (she could give Mariah Carey a run for her money when hitting the high notes), and yet a lot of the time we will still find ourselves laughing at something she does to get out of going to sleep. There are many things that your children can do to give you that deep down warm feeling of being a parent, and in a manner that only your children can provide. One things that touches my heart every day is that big smile that you know is reserved for you... and only you. The first time your child is able to say "Daddy", or "Mommy"... priceless! The warm greeting you get when you return home, or the waves from the window when you leave for work make for golden memories you will cherish later.
Time is "fleeting", and it seems that our children become young adults in an 'blink of an eye', so enjoy these precious moments now because you will never get them back.
