3 word challenge...

i saw this first on from tracie, and i thought it'd be fun. the folks over at trifecta, as part of their weekend contest, issued the following challenge:

Robert Frost one said, "In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on."  We want you to do the same.  Sum up anything you want, but do it in three words.  Your response should mirror Frost's quote by beginning, "In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about--."  And the last four words are yours to choose. 

herewith:

in three words i can sum up everything i've learned about parenting: just be there.

  3. it's all kids want - for their parents to be there - listening, caring, loving, never moving. :)

    1. i think you're right. sometimes one of the kid will talk about me not being home, and then when i am, they're playing somewhere else in the house! it's then i realize that just being there is so important. thanks for stopping by - s.
