    May the hugs be with you, Tom; now and forever. My son is 19 and never leaves the house, nor allows me to go to bed before making that connection. Yes, absolutely the best.

  2. great stuff. my best moment of the day today? probably dropping the triplets off at their first day of camp.

  3. Oh man, mine is the same. I call it “tummy time” with my one-year-old son. No sooner does he wake up at seven a.m., than his dad has thrown off his shirt for a good skin-to-skin hug. Easily the best moment of the day – closely followed by the moment when I slowly open the door after work and peer into the living room…and my boy squeals with pure joy the moment he glimpses my grinning face.

  4. Well, I guess mine is bedtime, usually, when after I check on the kids and they’re sleeping like angels, and my wife is too, and I can finally lay down and drop everything for a few hours. For me, the best moment of the day is the last one.
