I just had to share this picture! So, I come around the corner and there is my youngest daughter, Simone, playing the piano in her jammies and her bunny hat, that I made for her last winter! It made me laugh, so I had to share this! I am a big fan of Bob's Burgers and it reminded me of the little girl on there that is always wearing bunny ears :P
My daughters are such a huge source of motivation and inspiration for me. They remind me of what it was like to be a kid. They are so free, energetic, and genuine in all that they do. My girls help me to tap into those aspects of myself, that sometimes get lost when I am busy being a grown up. I am so grateful to have them as a constant reminder of what is truly important in life, of the good things in life; I cherish these little moments and never want to forget them.
As a parent, my goal is to teach my children all that I can in order to help them be successful in life, but, quite often, I am finding that they are the ones that teach me. They have helped me to grow and become a better person, providing me with a fresh and new perspective. Because everything is still so new to them, they often question the absurdities in life, that we adults just accept. I expect them to listen to what I have to tell them, but I think that is reciprocal; I make it a point to really listen to what they have to say too. They remind me that it is the little things, the journey, and not the end goal that is your life. I love them more than any words could ever express, and when they are old enough to understand, I plan to thank them for all that they have done for me.
