Lately, on InstagramSpent the day looking for Nemo and finding so much more. Nothing is more satisfying to me than a day exploring with my sidekicks. Naps were skipped and too many snacks were given out and I finally feel free as a parent to embrace these off-schedule on-adventure days for the gift they are.I think every parent looks at their kids sometimes and smugly congratulates themselves on having the best child there is. You just get overwhelmed sometimes that you got such good ones. And the funny thing is, we all know that other parents are saying this and we could instantly give a lengthy list of the reasons we are glad their kids aren’t ours. Of course, I could make that list about my own too, all their flaws that get under my skin and make me wish for bedtime. But that crazy unconditional love part that comes with being their parent means that no matter what- I know I have the best kids there ever were. And you do too, and it’s irrational and wonderful and is it bedtime yet?
