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.

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!
