It is no secret amongst my friends and family, that kids and I have a love/hate relationship.
For the longest time, I could not stand children. Being around them didn’t interest me one bit. Literally the only kid I really liked was my niece. I think being around her set the bar of how I feel like a lot of kids should act, smart and respectful.
Well maybe with maturity and understanding, I have softened up tremendously. I’m still not convinced if motherhood is in my future, kids are not that bad. The older I get the more I people I know and love are having children. Seeing the love my friends have for their children is awesome. I think personally for me experiencing being an aunt amongst family as well as friends, has changed the way I look at children. Think about it. Being an influence in a child’s life is rewarding. You are helping them learn new things, experience a new perspective of life, and visit new places. You get to see them grow from a baby who just sleeps, cries, and poops, to a person with their own personality. It can be pretty entertaining at times. Kids are cute, they are smart and they are funny.
I respect parents. I know your job isn’t easy. All that I ask is that parents teach their children to love, be respectful, and never give up on their dreams.
Sweet faces I love…
