These are a few of my recent favorite moments with the kids that I don't want to ever forget - little things that T Rex Dad and I will be talking about when we're old and gray reminiscing in our rocking chairs.
Moments like bedtime stories - various tales of Elmo and his lost puppy, Blankie, Yummy/Yucky, Jenny's Birthday Book, Kim and Carrots, Cris Cross Applesauce...and all their sweet voices helping tell the tales.
Moments at the Burger King play center, a place that is almost always unoccupied allowing for uninterrupted, free entertainment. I love seeing Lil Sister crossing "the bridge" (I wish I had a recording of her little voice saying that) or seeing her hanging at the top of the slide before going down the twists and turns. Or the look on T Rex's face as he is actually in the tube sliding.
There are even some great moments for me but less enjoyable ones for the kiddos - blending ice cream ingredients, a loud task, but oh so cute to see them covering their little ears.
The kinds of moments that help me through long clinic days when I see my kids for less than an hour in the day, if at all.
These are the kids of moments that simply make me smile.
