choosing our words (when talking to kids).
Just last week, Tim was getting ready to leave for a work trip. As he was pulling his carry-on from the trunk and saying goodbye to our girls, he made a comment about being sad to leave them. Even before the words were out of his mouth, our eyes met and with that glance, he quickly dialed-up the happiness in his voice to end on a positive note. In that moment, our girls went from being sorry to see him go, to being happy and talking about his swift return.
