To my munchkins,
I love you. I love the way you run around pell-mell, still learning about your equilibrium, chasing after balls and laughing your heads off. I love that you’re learning how to work things out with each other and share. I love it when you tell me you missed me even though I just saw you yesterday. I love it when you snuggle up next to me just because you need a little loving. I love that I can be there for you when you miss your mommy and that I can make you feel better. I love that you are learning how to tell jokes and that you laugh so hard when you’re with your friends. I love that you don’t want to leave because you’re having so much fun. I love that confused look on your face when I see you outside of school and then you get really excited! I love how you say my name … not quite right, but you’re trying to hard! I love your little monkey self after you wake up from rest and need a few more minutes to really wake up while I carry you around doing other things. I love the games you come up with on the playground and that I get to play with you for hours each day. I love your little loving self so much!
It’s not easy, and we definitely have moments, but it sure is awesome.
Thanks for letting me into your life.
