I think it is sad that only my children know what I mean when I say, "What's the magic word?" All their friends look at me like I'm insane. It's called manners - use them and teach them to your children.
In our house. only hugs, smiles and warm fuzzy feelings are allowed. (remember that little book - all I ever needed to know I learned in Kindergarten =- yeah that is what my baby is learning now -warm fuzzy vs cold prickly).
This is so true that on the nights it isn't raining, I sleep to the sound of artificial rain. though it simply can not compare to the real thing. The best thing to fall asleep to is the sound of a raging thunderstorm.
Some parents love to spend time with their children and some only want to spend time with one or neither. Sometimes parents forget to spend time with their children.One can only hope that every child is loved.
