This spoke to me tonight.
Miles, you’re sitting behind me right now finishing up school work with a friend of yours. This secret is exactly how I feel, I won’t have children with anyone but you,you’re such an amazing human being and the only person I could ever trust with something as precious as parenthood. I love you, lock and key.
Gainesville: A night on the street
This is outside the Civic Media Center in Gainesville and it was just what I needed to come across last night!!
This morning my daughter, who is nearly four, saw the stretch marks on my hips and stomach. She ran her hands over them and asked what they were.
“I got them when I grew up,” I said, “and a few more when I had you.” I grinned down at her. “They’re my stripes. You’ll get stripes too when you grow up.”
She was overjoyed. “Really?”
I think she’s in her room now, pretending to be a tiger.
This is what we need to teach.
I literally teared up reading this, God I love good parents and the wonder of children.
