My tiny saboteurs

These are my most favourite of all people. We have Sophia, aka The Fif who is almost 4. Liam, aka, Little Lamb who is 1 year old + Tobin, aka The Monks who is 7.
We say in jest that we have been Monked & Fifed and that at times it seems as if these little people are actually conspiring against us to sabotage our best parental efforts. Truth be told, they have inspired us to be more creative, inventive, sponaneous + all around better people than we ever thought possible. They are our tiny teachers and like all good teachers each day they give us opportunities to be the very best we can be. And like little children taking instruction, sometimes we grown folk stomp our feet when we are not able to do what we want as we want to do it. Each day I am better for these 3 little blessings.
With that...a favorite + ridiculously apropos poem of mine by E.E.Cummings:
i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

I can't begin to list the infinate number of ways that our lives are better for these tiny people or the countless ways that we love each of them. We are honored to be Monked & Fifed
You 3 mean everything to us + we love you always, forever...more than any words can ever describe.
