365 Days of Gratitude – Day 743

Babysitting…

For being reminded of the raw, pure human potential found in those innocent eyes, for the unadulterated laughter over a game of peek-a-boo, for being reminded of the amazing responsibility of raising kids….

“Children can be told anything—anything. I’ve always been struck by seeing how little grown-up people understand children, how little parents even understand their own children. Nothing should be concealed from children on the pretext that they are little and that it is too early for them to understand. What a miserable and unfortunate idea! And how readily the children detect that their fathers consider them too little to understand anything, though they understand everything. Grown-up people do not know that a child can give exceedingly good advice even in the most difficult case.” Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Here’s till tomorrow and preparing them…
