What My Children Have Taught Me

3 Apr

I’ve started a list of things that my boys have taught me.  This isn’t everything, it’s actually just the beginning…

  • Take the time to watch a leaf blowing by – it can very well be the best 15 seconds of your day.
  • Enjoy the tugs on your pant leg while you’re trying to do dishes – it won’t last forever and someday soon, you’re gonna miss them.
  • If the toy phone is ringing and your toddler wants you to answer it – you better freaking answer it!
  • It’s perfectly acceptable to have ice cream for breakfast.
  • Sometimes a good cry or tantrum is what we need to get through the rest of our day.
  • Bathtime = splashtime and a big mess. It’s the little things that equal happiness.
  • Don’t cry over spilt milk.
  • Patience.
  • It doesn’t matter how silly you look …. Just dance.
  • Unless there’s blood, there’s no reason to panic.
  • Toots are the funniest thing EVER.
  • The dishes can wait. Sometimes a fort out of the couch cushions needs built immediately before Hulk and Ironman find us!

What have your children taught you?
