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

These are just a few of the things I’ve answered today:

Why do I have to wear clean clothes?

Is this my wallet?

Do cowboys toot?

Why is this called a pinky finger?

Can I please move out of this house (with your stupid rules) and move in with my friends? (At age 11)

How many days ‘til the cruise?
