Start listening today...

I found this poem and wanted to share...


Take a moment to listen today,
to what your children are trying to say.
Listen today what ever you do,
or they won't come back to listen to you.
Listen to their problems.
Listen to their needs.
Praise their smallest triumphs.
Praise their smallest deeds.
Listen to their chatter.
Amplify their laughter.
Find out what's the matter.
Get to what they're after.
Tell them that you love them every single night,
and as you tip toe out,
"Brush your teeth,
Happy dreams, sleep tight."
Turn out the light.
Turn around and say,
"Oh, by the way,
Regardless of our differences today,
Tomorrow everything will be all right,
and things between you and I are bright."
Take a moment to listen today,
to what your children are trying to say.
Listen today whatever you do,
and they'll come back to listen to you.

I started this post on Sunday, but little honey "interrupted" me and needed me to make his milk and watch a movie with him. So that's what I did! Life happens so fast and can pass you by in a moment - don't let your kids pass you by while your "busy" on the computer or "working".

Enjoy your day!
