"Keeper of the Cheerios"

There's a relatively new song out by Jamie O'Neal about moms, "Somebody's Hero." I don't usually like sappy, country/cross-over type songs, but with a line
like "keeper of the cheerios" I find it genious. If you're ever feeling like you're not doing enough as a mom-especially those of you who work away from home-just remember how excited your child is when you pick him or her up from day care. Like the song sings, you "bring Snow White to life."
Something as simple as reading a book to your child is creating lasting memories, building bonds, and encouraging education. Playing outside with your kid, playing a game, singing, laughing, talking, listening, dinner time, bath time, a stroll around the neighborhood-even if it's one little thing you do each day-if you show your love-it's enough.
"She's somebody's hero
A hero to her baby with a skinned up knee
A little kiss is all she needs
The keeper of the cheerios
The voice that brings Snow White to life
Bedtime stories every night
And that smile lets her know
She's somebody's hero"
Since I'm quoting from a song today, there are two other songs about life with kids-they're pretty funny and very true. I've included them in my LINKS list.
