The best part about bringing children into the world is the way in which they bring us back to our childhood. We see things through their eyes and know their wonder.

We wonder exactly who Dr. Suess wrote all those books for and best of all we get to kick out the jams as we suddenly find ourselves teaching and singing those songs we haven't thought of in decades to our children.
