    I opened the door to find my five year old son, Jayden, sitting in the middle of my makeup- all scattered around him on the floor. "Jayden what are you doing?" I asked angrily. He looked up at me a little fearfully and said "Mommy I just wanted to draw you a picture." Seeing the water well up in his wide blue eyes, I softened. "Why did you use Mommy's makeup instead of all the new crayons I bought you?" I asked. "Because," He replied, "these are pretty colors, and Daddy says that they make you beautiful, and I wanted your picture to be pretty, like you." All my anger burnt out, I hugged Jayden close to me. I felt so bad now about getting angry. He felt the tears on my face before I did, and simply said "Don't cry Mommy. You'll always be prettier than my picture."

    Appreciate the small things

    The first graders were discussing a picture of a family. One little boy in the picture had different color hair from the other family members. One child suggested that he was adopted.

    A little girl said, "I know all about adoptions because I was adopted."

    "What does it mean to be adopted?" asked another child.

    It means," said the girl, "that you grew in your mommy's heart instead of her tummy."

    A wise man taught me how to tell time, just for me to be late.
    He taught me how to talk, just for me to spend more time talking to my friends than to him.
    He taught me how to drive, just for me to take the car any chance I get.
    He helped me with my homework, just for me to tell him he's wrong.
    He taught me how to play football, just for me to play with anyone but him.
    He taught me how to cook, fish, and set up a tent, just so I can spend summers camping with friends.
    He taught me how to be strong, just for me to think I don't need him.
    He showed me the 'good music', just for me to go to concerts without him.
    He told me it's okay to make mistakes, as long as you don't make the same one twice, just for me to continue anyway.
    I'm sorry Daddy, for taking everything you showed me, and using it to block you out.
