Something to remember








SOMETHING TO ALWAYS REMEMBER

IF I HAD MY CHILD TO RAISE ALL OVER AGAIN, I'D BUILD SELF-ESTEEM FIRST, AND THE HOUSE LATER.
I'D FINGER-PAINT MORE, AND POINT THE FINGER LESS.
I WOULD DO LESS CORRECTING AND MORE CONNECTING.
I'D TAKE MY EYES OFF MY WATCH, AND WATCH WITH MY EYES.
I'D TAKE MORE HIKES AND FLY MORE KITES.
I'D STOP PLAYING SERIOUS, AND SERIOUSLY PLAY.
I WOULD RUN THROUGH MORE FIELDS AND GAZE AT MORE STARS.
I'D DO MORE HUGGING AND LESS TUGGING.
-DIANE LOOMANS

  1. I can't believe how much these kids are growing up. I still think of Nadya as a baby, but she's definitely a little girl. They're all adorable, and I miss them. And also you.
