Today, I …
Drove my son and daughter #1 to school this morning.
Encouraged daughter #1 to handle her forgotten homework without blaming others.
Chatted with daughter #2 before school.
Relayed a phone message from my son to my wife to take his glasses to school.
Listened to daughter #2 play her new french horn.
Took daughter #1 to a volleyball meeting.
Shared breadsticks and a Coke with daughter #1.
Learned the game Axis & Allies with my son tonight.
Helped my son with email etiquette to adults for his science fair project.
Helped daughter #1 pick out a picture from our last vacation.
Gave daughter #2 a big hug.
Tucked in both daughters and gave my son a pat before bed.
Remembered that the time I spend with my children is the best gift I can give them.
