We had one of those days that sometimes are few and far between in the days of kid rearing....everyone was happy and content and the day was a constant flow of good feelings and Joe and I and looked at each other and were humbled by the realness of our little life....These are our kids and they are amazing. Smiling and cheerful and full of beans. Finn gave the elf 5 bucks and told her to give it to a poor kid for a toy for Christmas...I cried in the street. I cried because he listens to the things I am trying to teach him and although he is so small and so slight against the world, he is wise.... I could live this day over and over.
