can't you go to bed!... Oh wait...

Tonight I am sitting here trying to get audrey to sleep. she is waking up as soon as I lay her down. she is getting mad as i am trying to get her to sleep. but i need her to sleep - i have laundry to fold, dishes to do, toys to pick up... but wait
what is important here???? In the scheme of things isnt cherishing the moments with my baby more important than other things? Someday will be the last time I rock her to sleep. Someday she will not want cuddles anymore. There have already been lasts. The last time she drank mommys milk, the last time she gummed my finger instead if biting it with her tooth. The last time she just sat on my lap because she couldnt go anywhere. growing up happens and it doesnt make me sad (yet) but I am trying to remind myself to cherish the moments.
The toys can wait, the dishes can wait, the laundry can wait. Tonight I am going to enjoy the cuddles and kisses with my little girl, the little girl I waited so long for...

  1. I haven't heard that song in years. In fact, the last time I heard it, I had little ones to take care of. Now, just memories. Thanks Julia. I love you.
