As I sit in my girls nursery waiting for them to wake up to be fed there is a moment that I absolutely LOVE. When the girls are ready to wake up they are not crying they are just laying there playing with their hands until mommy and/or daddy walks up to their cribs and stands over them then it happens, the biggest smile grows on their faces covering cheek to cheek. They are excited to see their mommy and/or their daddy.
As a loving father of 5 month old twins I may not know it all, but I would tend to lean on the side that I know more about what they need than they do. I know that they need to eat. I know that they need diaper changes. I know that they need to sleep. I know that they like to play, and yet I also know that they need their shots even though it hurts them ( I am not sure, but it might hurt me more). I know that when they are crying they need to be soothed and they do not want you to leave them. I know that down the road they will need to be disciplined for things that they do after time and time again of telling them not to do it, but not because of anger or disappointment, but to show them the right way out of love in order for them not to hurt themselves and to let them know that I know better.
