One of the best things about having Lee around is sharing smiles about our little guy….and our big guy too!
It’s also something I missed greatly when he was “away” when James was small.
Let’s face it, all of our children are wonderful, smart, funny, brilliant, cute of course. But no one thinks they’re as cute as their parents do.
When Lee wasn’t around, I missed this smile sharing over the head of a little guy so much. When I share a story about my child, I temper my enthusiasm a little because I know no one loves them quite as much as we do.
I am thankful that I can go on and on about Nathan or James to Lee and he thinks they’re as funny or brilliant as I do. I’m thankful for the 100 little funny things about our little guy that I can share with Lee every day. I know I missed sharing 100s of funny little things about James with him because we talked so infrequently (although those bills certainly felt like we were living on the phone).
I was finishing a book the other day and a line said, “We exchanged that glorious ‘aren’t our kids something’ look that parents are sometimes privileged enough to share….”
Yes….that sums it up beautifully.
