As I was chasing them around on a tiny bike,
letting them chase me,
and climbing up and down the clubhouse slide,
I found myself laughing-
truly enjoying myself and our activities.
And as I soothed a wipeout boo-boo,
instructed them to be kind and use manners,
and held one as they ate,
I really began to understand how children are lovely and unique.
They need someone to care.
They need someone to share.
I love that they look up to me
and that I can be there for them.
