What a beautiful sentiment here, Michael Thompson! Raising children brings such joy and such struggle. They call us to be better people, even when they aren’t watching.

It’s the peaceful moments like you describe here, your son uttering colors as he sleeps, that hold our hearts. What could he have been thinking, playing, learning, creating? They teach us so much when we pause and take note. Wise beyond their years, and soft enough to be influential…children.
