Don't forget to enjoy your child today. You have one of the hardest jobs on the face of the earth as a mother. But this time really will pass quickly.
So today, buy your kids a bag of popcorn at Target to munch on while you shop, let your kids pick out their favorite candy bar or bag of candy, make ice cream sundaes, let them help you make chocolate chip cookies or a box of brownies, tell them about the day they were born, lay on the couch with them and watch a movie, and smell their hair when you take them out of the bathtub...
They may not remember everything about their childhood, but I promise, they will remember these things that they did with YOU. They will remember the silly little songs that you sang to them and how you slept on their bedroom floor when they were sick. They will remember how you baked their favorite cookies just because you knew it would mean a lot when they had a hard day. They might remember some of your bad days, too, but the good days will outnumber those.
Enjoy this day because you won't have another one just like it.
