I used to pity parents at the airport with a gazillion bags, strollers, car seats, and kids running wild on excitement and messed up sleep schedule. I would turn to Cliff and whisper, this is why we should never have kids.
I hereby apologize to all those parents I pitied. I took a little glimpse of a crazy moment in theirs lives and used that against them. I had no idea that beyond those crazy moments, there’s so much more joy, love and pride to be experienced by becoming a parent.
So who cares that our kids will be running wild around the airport today, miss their naps, and Cliff and I will be buried under our bags, strollers and car seats? We’re creating memories with our kids that I will treasure forever.
