Enjoy Your Children

"It is probably a tie between my husband and my mom. My husband is a wonderful father. He even goes to all of our daughter's doctor appointments. I don't know many dads who do that. My mom watches my daughter while I work. She is also always there to support me and listen. The best thing I learned from another mom was to stop and enjoy your kids. Spend time with them, find humor in every situation and look at the world through their eyes. My mom told me this and so did my grandma. They both felt like they spent so much time worrying about a clean house and yelling at their kids that they didn't spend enough time enjoying them. I have made it a priority to enjoy every second of my daughter's life." —okiefrmuskogee
