Commit to Memory

For all of the mundane tasks that motherhood brings, today my girls have given me so many reminders as to why they are the center of my world. I picked up a screaming Roob and predictably, she quieted and put her head on my shoulder. She popped her little head up and smiled at me before giving me the wettest, gooiest, most heartfelt kiss I ever received. Not to be outdone, Goldie ran up and started kissing my legs. The three of us stood there near the dining room table for a few moments just kissing and hugging and silently confirming the bond we have as The Girls.

A few hours later I was nursing Roob before her nap and she fell asleep. I moved her so she could rest and I realized that maybe this would be the last time that my baby-not-so-much-anymore might fall asleep on my chest. I soaked it all in. Her sleepy, heavy body breathing softly into my face with her string cheese breath and you know what? I thought I was in heaven.

I love this life.

It is amazing how the little things they do make you realize how much they have brought to your life.

There is nothing like a wet, open-mouth, toddler kiss! They are simply the best!

Awesome. Great that you had the wherewithall to slow down and appreciate it in the moment, which is sometimes so hard to do when you get caught up in the day to day minutiae.
