There are a few people who don’t appreciate attention. I’m not really
one of them. I may blush and stammer and beg you to stop, but deep down
I’m enjoying every minute.
Maybe that’s one reason, no matter how much work, hassle, and headache
they cause me, I still actually like having lots of children. From the
newborn who stares at me as if to say “You are the most amazing person
in the world and there is nothing I would rather do than look at you
all day,” to the toddler who follows me into the bathroom, to the
preschooler who narrates my every move and liberally adds “Great job, Mommy!”, I get my fair share of attention.
So I realized today, I have my very own 24/7 audience. And although
they can be tough critics at times, in general, I get rave reviews.
‘Course, they don’t get out much.
