Parenting Conundrums

How is it that the child that makes you furious melts your heart 3 seconds later?

How can a child that is less than 3 years old and not allowed to watch television, identify "Spiderman" in a magazine ad?

How can a child go from cute, clean and ready-to-go to dirty, sticky, and in-need-of-a-bath in the time it takes you to buckle the baby into a carseat and pick up the diaper bag?

How does the baby you hold in your arms turn into a five year old, masterfully cuddling the new baby, seemingly overnight?

How does the very-really-really hungry child become not hungry at one quick glance of the prepared supper?

How can the child that can't sleep unless kissed by Mommy and Daddy skip off to stay with the Grandparents without a second glance back?

How can someone you've only known for a few short weeks become one of the dearest people in the world to you?

How can one milky smile make your dreary day 100% better?

How can one belly laugh make your entire week 100% better?
