Children can lighten up any kind of environment. They are mirthful, amusing, stupid, funny, sometimes even ruthless.
When everyone asks you what you want to do for your big 3-0, all you can do is think about hiding in a corner and crying.
Picturing all that lay ahead, for both of us, was when I realized what the hardest part of parenting is. And it isn’t what I thought it would be.
The paddle not only cracks down on these kids’ wrists, but also their self esteem, their health, and their likelihood to succeed.
Kids know everybody likes a hug. Or a handshake. Or a comforting shoulder pat.
I couldn’t help wonder why I was so different to everyone else. Why did I not feel absolute bliss when I was at home with the kids? Why did I enjoy drinking wine with friends when I was away with work instead of wallowing in self-pity in my hotel room because I missed them so much?
I have been thinking about you a lot lately. I don’t really know if we will be going back for another round of IVF. Your siblings are triplets and it is kind of a lot right now.
Apparently, it’s a morality thing.
Your friends who think their pets are children will never understand.
Kids are naturally curious, so as you spend time with them outdoors, it’s easy to teach them about the importance of caring for the environment.
