Especially the Little Things Children Do

Aside all the little things that we should all be appeciative of, like the air we breath, the shelter over our heads, the food we eat, andthe marvels of modern technology, there's the little things that children do.  Personally, I appreciate getting home and having my children (a preschooler and a toddler) run to greet me; I love playing with them, reading to them, carrying them, teaching them stuff, and I especially love watching them right after they fall asleep.  I've been a father for almost four years now and I still very much appreciate just hearing them call me Dada or Daddy.

Awww. That must be very special. My roomie has three kids whom I adore, and I love when I come in and they all want to hug me right away, and then the oldest has to ask me about the crocodiles he's been reading about, the middle one has to show me her new sparkly headband, and the youngest wants to be tickled.

Touching story I agree why complain about everything when you can smile at the brighter side of life, it's not all gloom and doom ;)

nice story!

i am a mother not father but i enjoy the same thing lol

I agree or couldnt agree more! Appreciate life and the small wonders.

we take so many things for granted in our lives. Everyday we cry abt small things, we shuld look at people who dont get food for days, people who still hav to struggle to get a glass of clean water, children who hav to walk bare footed for miles everyday just to attend their school. We must look at these people and feel lucky thst we r living such a cozy life.

That is so Beautiful! You sound like an amazing father and your children are so fortunate to have you! Thank you for sharing those precious thoughts. I teach children and I have to honestly say I think I learn more from them than they learn from me. I love the things they say that pull at the heart strings and the things that make you LAUGH OUT LOUD! especially in the quiet of a moment and the memory comes back to you and people wonder what in the world made you laugh! I LOVE IT!!!<br />
The little things in life definitely become the BIG things in life when it works on our hearts :)

Theres nothing more fulfilling than children! I <3 my Boys!

very true Your appreciated and God bless you my friend....:)

I have two, teens, and til now I never forget how sweet they look right after they wake up...btwn infancy and about 4, looking all confused, holding out their hands to be picked up. Almost all kids do that. You're a great dad.

i hear ya... i have four amazing kids..and I couldn't imagine life without them..They light up my life. The bring a joy that nothing else can

Lol,wait until they become teenagers!<br />

J/K,kids are great and I don't know what I would have done without mine in my life.Unless you've had kids,you haven't experienced life fully.

As long as they're YOUR kids. I have met a few school marms who said after they've worked with other people's kids, they decided to remain childless.

Wait until they fall asleep in a bowl of pasta!<br />
