My six-year-old is at the best age...
...he can do most things on his own.
...he is in Kindergarten, and the world is opening up to him.
...he can express his desires in complex and complete ways.
...his imagination is creative and wide and incredible.
...he can still snuggle with mom and dad.
...he is starting to see that he's not always the center of the world, and he's okay with it.
...he is eager to grow and learn.
My two-year-old is at the best age...
...he needs help for many things but can do some things on his own.
...he is learning how to express himself.
...he is just discovering the wonderful world of make-believe.
...he snuggles all the time with mom and dad.
...he believes that he is the center of the world and that is okay.
...every day is a new experience for him!
My eight-month-old is a the best age...
...she can put her pacifier in for herself and choose her own toys, but other than that, mom & dad do everything for her. (what a life!)...she hangs out every day with mom or dad, all the time.
...she laughs at peekaboo but doesn't always believe that we'll come back.
...she snuggles all the time with mom and dad and anyone else who will hold her.
...she knows that she is the center of the world and that is just right.
...each day she grows and learns and changes.
And tomorrow, each of them will be one day older.
Tomorrow, each of them will be at the best age again.
