The other day I stumbled across a video of Nigel Marsh at TED (http://www.ted.com/) sharing on “How to Make Work-Life Balance Work.” Â This is a great video for anyone who is busy, and feels like life is out of balance, to watch… especially busy moms and dads. Â It talks about the realities of achieving the perfect balance of work and family, and Â how even small efforts we make can have a huge impact in the lives of those we love. Â Honestly, Nigel’s dream perfect day is a little different than mine. Â As a non-drinker, rather than stopping by the pub, my preference would be Starbucks with a good book. Â That being said, the point of the talk is well made. Â Here is the video….

Then today I came across this video at Dad-O-Matic (http://dadomatic.com) that shows Nigel’s principle in action. Â It demonstrates how a little effort from a dad can light a kids face up, and turn something as simple as a birthday cake into a lifelong memory.

The small things we do can make a big difference can’t they? Â They small things really do matter,Â especiallyÂ to our kids.
What is a small investment you can make in your child today?
