With all that I do and love, I think the single greatest highlight of my life is putting my kids to bed when my wife and I have something big planned for them in the morning.
Seeing them in their jammies with the look of great anticipation, and my wife and I knowing that we are going to fully deliver for them is such a special moment.
A memory that sticks out is our first night on the Disney Cruise, tucking them into those cold tight white sheets, saying good night, and reminding them that the fun isn’t over, it has just begun. Letting them know that tomorrow we embark on more fun, just for them. Those smiles, eyes closed, and giggling with joy give me great pleasure and fulfillment.
I love these moments, and what I realize it doesn’t have to be only on nights where the next day we have a theme park planned, vacation, or special party….Every night can be like this, we can always look forward to going to the park, watching a movie, reading a new book, or just making it a point to have some special playtime in the morning.
It’s important to make each day special!
