Week 6 - Loving Kids Can Make You Crazy But It's Worth Every Moment.
Kids are amazing. If you have children of your own or know a few kids, there is nothing more fascinating than a small human. Go ahead watch them and learn. As adults, we have forgotten to stare at the world through a filter of unbiased. Their brains are like sponges, and their bodies prefer to run on piles of sugar hearts. They howl at the moon and take off their pants in the middle of the grocery store. Kids whack street signs with sticks and run through mud puddles in brand new athletic shoes. They decorate our favorite sweatshirt with marker and tell the man next door that he must be pregnant with a belly that big. As adults, we never thought we would hear ourselves utter the phrase "Put your shoes on." more than a handful of times in our lives. Kids make us say it over, and over AND over. If we didn't know any better, it seems as if kids are trying to drive us mad. Children live without rules and are just being little. As adults, that can make us crazy.
However, as a parent, "I Love My Kids So Deeply It Hurts." No one will ever know what it's like to love my kids as much as I do. It's heartbreakingly joyful and worth every crazy moment.
For example, I'm off to clean up a cardboard box filled with ice cubes, wrapped in a roll of masking tape melting on my kitchen floor. I'll then go love the crazy. How about you?
Until tomorrow Kiddos.
