This journey of motherhood has taken me on such a beautiful ride. It's been full of emotion, discovery, so much love, magic, joy, and laughter. Kids have a way of taking things down to the basics and just enjoying the moment for what it is. All the things adults worry about kids are oblivious to, and that makes life so much more about the here and now instead of living in the past or the future like we adults like to do. Children don't know how to be cynical, judgmental, or nasty to others, and they don't hold grudges. They are so quick to forgive, they laugh easily, and they give out hugs and kisses willingly and cheerfully. There is so much to learn from them. Watching my little one exploring and playing and just experiencing life helps me slow down and see things through her eyes. She is always busy having fun, whether she's riding her scooter, watching construction workers pour concrete next door, or playing with her sisters' rubber Squinkie dolls.
