My sister and I won some sort of jackpot with our children. They're just so darned good. They never want to be inside in front of a TV when they could be out on their bikes, and taking away book priviledges causes far more upset than taking away the DS. They're polite and intelligent and genuinely care for others.
There are people out there, good parents, who struggle their whole lives to instill these things into their kids with mixed success, and we get ones that come by these traits naturally. How did we get such good fortune to have such great kids? They're all wonderful, and we're so blessed to have them.
