You aren’t merely loved by your children.
Because while hugs & kisses are all fine and dandy,
it’s the life lessons you’re teaching that dazzle-
the strict bedtime (or curfew).
Sometimes the most heartbreaking, snot-nosed lessons,
will be the ones to build their character the most.
And molding them into happy, healthy, value-infused little people?
Is what you take pride in.
