It's moments like this

There are some days when you find yourself on repeat.

There are days when you feel like all you have accomplished in the span of the day was preventing your child from eating more than 5 pieces of dog food.

Days that the laundry or the dishes seem to tower over you.

Times when you want to yell at someone or trip over a toy.

Night that the dog's baby waking bark sounds at midnight.

Then, there are moments you find yourself in.

Those are the moments that you never want to let go.

Cuddles at the end of a long day.

Smiles when you walk in the door after a long hard day at work.

The first time he looks at you and says, 'ma-ma' and knows he is talking to you.

Then, there are days when things just feel so right.

You look down at him and say, 'I love you' and he looks up at you with those big blue eyes of his.

He gives you this look that says 'I know.'

You ask for a kiss.

Then, he gives you a big, open mouthed one.

He looks up at you so intently, so full of expression and emotion like he wants to tell you, 'i love you too, momma'

He wraps his chubby little fingers around you and lays his sweet face on your shoulder.

It's moments like this.

It is all for moments like this.
