Lately, I've been having moments of "I wish I could just freeze time." This is just a short list of these moments.
The bright smile and peek-a-boo game between crib slats in the morning.
The sweet child-smell of their skin.
Tickle monster time.
The way my 18 month old runs, wobbly and smiley.
The cuddle song and whispers "When this song is over, can you snuggle for one more cuddle song?"
Head on shoulder and the way his little 18 month old body relaxes when I sing "You are my Sunshine".
Music playing, spontaneous dance parties.
"Conversations" with my 3 year old.
Listening to my 3 year old and 18 month old have "conversations" with each other.
Those big brown eyes.
My little thumb sucker snuggling into bed.
Mischievous laughter trickling down the hall.
Two hours of intentional bedtime routine.
"I love you dery, dery much, mommy."
