We give and give and give to our kids all day long. So why do they become so needy at bedtime? What is it they WANT from us already?
An innocent question from my youngest, "Dad, who's watching YOUR back?" on a hike recently made me consider the kind of dad and protector I want to be.
When my kids are pulling each other’s hair, screaming, or boycotting dinner, I imagine them in caps and gowns and it reminds me to cherish every moment.
