I am so thankful to God for my kids. Being a parent isn't always easy, but it is always a blessing. One of the things I love the most about being a parent is hanging out with my kids and having fun with them. If we aren't careful, we will work ourselves out of our kids' lives or we will be too serious about everything and distance ourselves from them. Yes, we need to work hard and teach our kids how to work hard. Yes, we need to be serious about some things and teach our kids how to be serious, too. But we also need to have fun in life, and we need to teach our kids how to have fun...especially with us:) Go out and have fun with the kids today. Be a big kid with the little kids. Life is too short to live any other way!
