Not every day of parenting is amazing, but two quotes today that reminded me of the sweetness of the chapter of life we live in...
From our 8 yr old foster daughter: "I want to stay a kid forever because I love cartwheels so much. How old are you when you stop doing cartwheels? I don't ever want to get that age."
And tonight during a stolen moment with our P I said: "Buddy, I don't think you can understand how much we love you."
His response? "I know. I think about it a lot actually."
Me: "You think about how much you are loved?"
P: "Yes, and what a lucky kid I am."
These moments...they redeem so much of the hard stuff...
