Say yes more than you say no.
Eat chocolate cake for breakfast.
Skip bath night sometimes.
Hug long and hard.
Have water balloon fights.
Help build sofa cushion forts.
Listen more than you talk.
Read to them.
Read their favorites over and over and over again.
Read to them even when they can read on their own.
Share your stories.
Laugh more than you cry.
Do the Hokey Pokey.
Carry them even when they are too big.
Play WITH them.
Run through the sprinklers.
Play in the rain.
Search for the end of the rainbow.
Share their interests.
Let them overhear you bragging about them.
Always have band aids.
Always let them lick the cake batter.
Hold tight and let them go.
Take them to the ocean.
And the mountains.
Wake them up at midnight to play in the snow.
Teach them how to roast a perfect marshmallow.
Show them how to make the world a better place.
Listen. REALLY LISTEN.
Whisper when you feel like yelling.
Say I'm sorry.
