A few final thoughts… I want my children to love me for me, and not what I buy for them. One of the most important things that I believe is crucial to parenting is teaching my children to respect others, and always be polite. Letting my children walk all over someone is not an option.
So I've written the past three posts to say this: Do I love staying at home with my kids? Not all the time, but I wouldn't trade my time with them for anything! They are growing up right before my eyes. To miss a smile or tear, a first word or first step, would be heartbreaking. I know that I will never get these moments back.
