Lately, on InstagramI 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?Shoutout to all the moms making valentines and signing their kids names on them this week. Henry handed me a flattened piece of play dough and told me it was my valentine, but I would have to “add the letters your own self,” and Etta just decorated the floor with six thousand pipe cleaners, so I’m definitely feeling the love.

// I mean, maybe it’s just me, but I find the many yards of bunting I have on hand to be one of my more practical possessions. You never know when you will need to whip it out and construct … Continue reading
