I was at the dentist office with my kids and I was thinking, "These are neat people. I like them." Even after my son screamed like a drunken banshee during his exam. And he pooped.
You love them and protect them from day 1. But they just do so much cute, funny stuff (note, the screaming and pooping did not qualify as cute or funny). I like how they want a hug after you tuck them in at night. Adam (age 2) calls a hug "hut". Larissa (age 5) likes to rub noses together.
I want hut, Dad-deeee!
Dad-deee wants hut, too. And my nose itches.
