Kids Remember The Loving Moments
Kids Remember The Loving Moments

Dr. Laura:

My parents recently celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary.  I can't tell you how many times my sisters and I witnessed them holding hands across the center console in the car as we drove from one place to another.  They hold hands when we go for walks in the neighborhood, on the beach, with their grandchildren, or quietly walking alone.  Despite my mom's avoidance of the camera, my sisters and I have always snapped pictures of these walks and the romantic little kisses between our Mom and Dad that usually accompanied them.  They've never seen most of these photos, but these are memories for us kids that we choose to treasure.  

My Dad has a lighthearted, loving, and funny approach to life.  He found creative approaches to getting his youngest grandchild to take a nap, and he's shopped willingly for "duck dog toys" so he could run a Halloween race with his daughters and sons-in-law in a "Mighty Ducks"-themed costume.  My sisters and I are all married, and we look to our parents for inspiration from the beautiful marriage they have created and that has endured.

To all the parents out there - kids do see and remember these moments!
