Right Now

Laying there with you, having your chubby little hand grab mine, then your body inch over until it is right up against mine. That is pure bliss. Often I think about how this whole mother of small children thing is just a blip on the map we call life. It consumes me and I enjoy it so much, but one day it will be gone.

I often find myself thinking back to my own childhood. I used to cuddle in bed with my dad, just as my kids cuddle with me. I now think how much it must have meant to him. One day I even asked if he missed having us little and he said yes. I know that I, one day, too will miss the feeling of my small children.

There is just something's about the relationship between a young child and their parent. The all consuming love they have for you. The way they love, accept and want all the hugs and kisses in the world from you.

That's the thing about parenting, it is constantly changing, like the tide in the sea. One day it will be so different than it is today, but I want to remember today. I want to remember those chubby little hands, those huge smiles, those mispronounced words. Because right now, they are my everything.

  1. I just love that photo of you and Connor. Parenting littles is tough sometimes but I agree, I am cherishing every second of it because I know I'll miss these days when they're gone.

  2. You are so right, this mothering small children is a blip on the map. A few months ago, someone told me that 'the days are long but the years are short' and it's so true.
