I am not only printing this - I am buying pretty paper to print it on and it's going in a frame. And I still don't have our family photos hung on the wall from when we moved last November, but this is going up tomorrow, somewhere where I will see it lots.

Definitely printing this out and putting it someplace I'll see it a lot. Having a newborn and a 3.5 year old has been such a challenge, and your post came at the perfect time. Thank you.

Oh wow. After a morning of feeling like such a failure (and acting a bit like one!) I can't believe I stumbled upon this. Desperately needed. Encouraging and inspiring for those moments that the daily ugliness overshadows the love. Thank you.

Desperately needed this today as I solo-parent a 2.5yo (disequillibrium, new sibling, daddy gone, and teething molars!) and 5 wk old (wonder week/growth spurt) while postpartum (hormonal and exhausted) as daddy is out to sea.

Crying here too. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You made me feel like a success instead of a failure, at least for a little while.
