These Moments

I'm lucky enough to be able to see you each and every day. There are many parents who are not as lucky. You are one of the biggest reasons why I could never allow myself to be down about life. Every morning I get to see your dimply-smile. Every night I get to whisper "buenas noches, y que Dios te bendiga". Not everyone is as lucky as me. I cannot record every moment and I will probably forget a lot more than I will ever be able to remember. Either way it does not matter. I lived these moments with you. I held you in arms as a baby. I read to you as a toddler. I was there when you first read Cat in the Hat for the very first time alone. I get to enjoy our morning "chit-chat" sessions. I was there when you built your first Lego set. I can go on for days! I might forget the details and yet I will always remember the joy I felt because you are in my life.

Winter Fun

I feel trapped in the house and the incessant cold I feel outside is not my idea of fun. That is not say that I have to clean the snow off the car, shovel until my back feels like it is going to break. No, I am not fond of snow. However, seeing just how much fun you have in it I cannot help but smile and join in. This is one of our snowball fights--love the cat-like reflexes!
