I read a blog post by a pretty cool guy Kevin Mills. He and his wife just had their 3rd child.

Here is a short excerpt from his latest post:

“It’s worth it to me to spend my money on my kids. I’m not talking about spoiling them, or buying them whatever they want, when they want it. But I think it would do a ton of good if we released the Kung Fu grip we have on our money – as if the world was trying to wrench it from our hands – and loosen up a bit.

Buy the movie popcorn every once in a while. Let them order a dessert or a milkshake for a change. Be spontaneous and take your kids to Toys R Us or Chuck E. Cheese not because they’ve EARNED it or did something special, but just because of who they are. WHOSE they are. They’re your kids. Love them. As much as you can, in as many ways as you can, as often as you can.

Because we’re all going to face That Day. When they’re gone, and we’re left with more old memories than new ones. And when that day comes, I think we’d all sleep a little bit better if we knew we did everything we could to give our kids the love and support they need to make it in the world.”
