It’s the Little Unexciting Things

Father and sonYears ago I thought I was the only person who had some of the thoughts and ideas that I called mine, yet every day I discover someone who has been thinking pretty much the same thing I’ve been thinking.

“Coming  home, pouring yourself a glass of wine, and sitting there having a conversation with your kid about how their day was: It’s not dramatic, it doesn’t seem exciting, but it’s probably the nicest part [of parenting].” ~ Stephen Colbert

It’s also one of the most important because years later when your kid is grown up you’ll find that those little conversations were much more exciting and much more dramatic because of the person your child has become.
