There's a viral video going around on Facebook right now about a mom and her two little girls. She's wired, trying to get through her day with them, but at the end of the day, the kids only remember the beautiful parts. The video says, "because your normal might be their magical."
Man, I hope my kids remember the cool parts of our day in between the mundane. In between the commands to, "SHARE WITH YOUR BROTHER; KEEP YOUR HANDS TO YOURSELVES; etc." and my millionth trip downstairs again to fulfill their requests for milk, grapes, goldfish or all of the above.
I hope they remember how we rocked out to @marenmorris in the car, had pool noodle light saber fights in the aisle at Target, held hands while we walked together, played duck-duck-goose on the trampoline with just three people, lied about our mini golf scores because A for effort, baked banana bread together and feasted on the batter, talked about dragons in the sky, flipped coins into a fountain and wished for everything, and cuddled each other at nap time in favor of phones, tv and computers. I hope they remember the good stuff. But I'm writing it down in case I forget, too.
