As parents you savor the things no one else can. The tired flutter of your baby's eyelashes, the enlightenment when they learn something new, the giggles that bounce down the hallway when your daughter's friends are over, and the blissful blank stare your son carries when he likes someone new. Keep them safe. Those sweet things, those irreplaceable sights, the sounds and feelings of how they grow.
Your family is valuable, the most valuable thing you have. If you find and hold an image from when your child was small, a story will flood your memory. "A thousand words" is an adage for a reason. This is why we do what we do. To tell your story, to make a record of your most valuable things. And most importantly, to flood your future self with "a thousand words" and a memory from now.
