Once when we were all in the livingroom checking the TV listings, I again was telling them how wonderful they were and how much I loved them, when out of the blue I hear,
I stop, and with a smile I say,
"Hey, I was pouring my heart out here."
But I also realized a bigger truth. They already knew how much I loved them, this wasn't surprising or new, this was comfortable and known. I couldn't have factory-ordered better kids!
