Trust me. This is the good stuff.

You watch your kids run through a field of wildflowers while the late afternoon sun makes their hair glow.

You snuggle on the couch and read a dog-eared copy of On the Night You Were Born for the 264th time. As you get to the part where the polar bears dance, you son presses closer under your arm, and you can actually hear him breathing.

The house is filled with the joy of Christmas. The tree twinkles and sparkles, carols are softly streaming on Pandora, and the aroma of freshly baked cookies fills the air. Your kids can’t wait to help you put the finishing touches on these holiday treats— the same ones you make every single year.

These moments. This is the good stuff. Every day you connect with your kids, but some days are definitely better than others. These special moments… this is what cherished family memories are made of.
