"We have a few special years with our children, when they're the ones that want us around. After that you're going to be running after them for a bit of attention. It's so fast Peter. It's a few years, and it's over."
This quote wasn't spoken by Robin Williams in the movie, but it sure struck home. I can't say enough how blessed I am to have a husband who always puts Rae and myself above all things. Creating adventures and just being together as a family will always mean more to us than anything else. Work.. materialistic things.. it's all temporary and so is our time here, especially with Rae while she is little. We say everyday how much she's growing, how quick she is learning new things and how we just love this stage she's at, which is why we try so much to let her experience the world around us as much as we can before school, boys, and other things take up her time.
Last week, trying to tie into Rae's love for fairies, we watched Ferngully. I completely forgot he was apart of that movie. We've also watched Aladdin and although she will probably never know the name Robin Williams, she will know his movies and his work will always live on. RIP.
"Thank you for every kindness. Thank you for our children. For the first time I saw them. Thank you for being someone I was always proud to be with. For your guts, for your sweetness. For how you always looked, for how I always wanted to touch you. God, you were my life. I apologize for everytime I ever failed you. Especially this one..." -Andrew Martin
