I woke up in an exceptionally great mood thanks to Dizbaby, who gave me tons of loving and a full day of high spirits yesterday. In the midst of parental duties consisting of tending to, caring for, and cleaning up after, reciprocation can get lost in translation and makes having kids feel like an eternity of unappreciated labor. But then you get a day like I had, loaded with smiles and sweetness, that puts everything in perspective and gasses you up for whatever wrench is thrown your way. Bring on the wrenches!
After putting Dylan to bed last night I was thinking about how much fun I had chasing, tickling, playing, and crawling on the floor with him. He was kissing me, hugging me, laughing up a storm and he didn't even cry when I changed his outfit (he hates putting clothes on and it doesn't help that my hands are usually cold). I really wanted to encapsulate our moments together and keep the good times rolling forever. But like Dr. Seuss says in Dylan's favorite book, "Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one. Every day, from here to there, funny things are everywhere." So here's to a plethora of baby Dylan gifs and finding the fun in each and every day.
