The Things You Do for You're Kids



Last night we had sleep together night where the parents get to sleep with the kids. We try to do it once a week. A few weeks ago, we made a fort and let the kids sleep in there. Last night, they requested the fort again only this time they requested me to sleep with them in the fort. Yes, I grumbled and complained (to myself) but I agreed to sleep on the hard, hard, floor in the fort. I really had to keep checking my attitude. I, in no way, shape, or form wanted to do it, but I knew that these are the types of things that make their childhood special. I also knew that these are the things that my kids are going to remember as special times spent with me.

So as I am starting my day today, I am really making an effort to not be as selfish and instead am thinking of other special things that we can do together.
