There are two distinctly great parts of my day. The first is waking up to our little girls voice over the monitor as she talks to herself while playing with the stuffed animals in her bed. Prior to our daughter’s birth, I did not really ever want to get out of bed, delaying getting out of bed as long as possible. That’s simply not the case anymore. The second guaranteed great part of my day is putting her to bed at night. She tells me the story she wants me to read and then we talk about it as she becomes relaxed and curls up in my lap. The things that happen in between are a little easier to deal with.
