My inspiration for this record of my days:

“The biggest mistake I made [as a parent] is the one that most of us make. . . . I did not live in the moment enough. This is particularly clear now that the moment is gone, captured only in photographs. There is one picture of [my three children] sitting in the grass on a quilt in the shadow of the swing set on a summer day, ages six, four, and one. And I wish I could remember what we ate, and what we talked about, and how they sounded, and how they looked when they slept that night. I wish I had not been in such a hurry to get on to the next thing: dinner, bath, book, bed. I wish I had treasured the doing a little more and the getting it done a little less” -Anna Quindlen

World’s Best Joshua

Every Sunday we watch family videos.  It always makes me feel warm and fuzzy to see how cute the kids were, and reminds me how fast they grow up.

Today we watched Josh’s fourth birthday.  He had been feeling bad because all the kids in the family had a trophy but him.  So, for his birthday, we ordered a special golden cup trophy that said “World’s Best Joshua.”


He has since added trophies and medals for several sports, and he now has a respectable collection.

I can’t help but love his first one the best.
