It's the Most Wonderful Thing

One thing that absolutely makes it all worthwhile is my 3 year old. He is the highlight of my every day.  He is a big brat, still can’t talk much, refuses to be potty trained and has minor learning disabilities but he is the best thing that ever happened to me.  Despite being in a loveless marriage, (which has signs, perhaps delusionary, of improvement) I have no regrets about my wife because of him. He is my joy.  The best is when my wife is working overnight, and he wakes up at 1 or 2 in the morning, and tells me he is scared, and he gets into bed with me.  He sleeps crooked, kicks me in the back all night long, and constantly pulls my hands close to him. I love the feel of my child cuddled up against, feeling the rise and fall of his tiny chest, and the sound of his little breath.  Despite never getting any sleep, I always look forward to the times he crawls into bed with me. It’s of the most wonderful things in the world. I love him more than I ever dreamed it was possible I could love someone.

My kids bring light to my life and give it true meaning, hold onto the good times with your son and treasure the memories you both create together
