This I Believe

NPR recently ended their "This I Believe" series so in honor of that I thought I would do my own little family edition.

I believe in the power of kids. I believe that they are here to teach us adults to laugh at ourselves. That the beauty of this crazy mess is in the simple moments.

I believe that a child's love is the purest love you will ever see. They don't want your money they simply want your time and your hugs...and in Harrison's case your phone :)

I believe that when a child is learning to talk you best watch your words as carefully as if your grandmother were in the room...even more so!

I believe that after 5 hours of airline delays the airlines should be forced to sit in a 3x3 seat with your child for the remainder of the ride. I also believe that when your child stands up as people are waiting to get off the plane and says
"PEOPLE OFF - PLANE" he is only saying what we are all thinking.

I believe that when you promise your child blueberry pancakes you will find him waiting in his chair trying to buckle himself in while you are getting ready.

I believe that when a I see H sitting pretending to read a book a little piece of my heart melts...and a little piece of me wishes he would stay this way forever.

I believe that a second child scares the hell out of me...and excites me at the same time.

I believe that if I had the money I would have 6 of these little crazy creatures...and probably drive us all crazy!
