... Waking up with your glasses on in your daughter's bed, with the inability to recall exactly what time you relocated there. (I think it was after 3!)
... Waking up in the middle of the night to find yourself still IN your daughter's bed, as you fell asleep next to her at "bedtime" and that was that.
... Having to *play* even when you're not quite awake yet and still have goopies in your eyes.
... Giving someone your shirt to wipe their nose with. When it's still ON you.
... Stealing a small glance at your child and noticing how she isn't a baby anymore.
... Putting this little being above all others.
... Trying to remember the last time you washed your hair.
... Never being allowed to finish something you're eating without sharing. (Sharing is good. Sharing is good.)
... Putting your foot down when your child wants to dip their Cheetos in your soup.
... Being able to get a drink for free since they come with the kids' meals and you don't want YOUR kid drinking a soft drink or sweet tea!
... Enjoying the holidays through another pair of eyes. The wonder. The excitement. The sugar high ... yeah, maybe that last one isn't just the kid ... Cookie, anyone?
