From The Heart


Some of the best parenting moments are the ones you don’t plan.

My seven year-old received a set of water colors from school, he didn’t open them immediately and let them sit for a few days, but when he was ready to use them, he grabbed my hand and said to me, “Let me paint a heart on you for Carmelina Hart.”

I thought for a second, shrugged my shoulders and replied, “Um, okay.” So he did, and I’m glad he did.
