I as talking to my sister and she was telling me about something adorable my niece had done. While listening I remembered that my little man had done the same thing and I couldn’t believe that I had forgotten about it! It seems so long ago since he used to start backing down the stairs about 10 feet before he was actually at the stairs. Such preparation! Then I thought about how many adorable things that will be forgotten as both he and now my daughter get older. How will I remember?
How will I remember that my son sings the words “uppa uppa the world so high” instead of “up above the world so high” while singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. It’s just so cute and I don’t have the heart to tell him he’s wrong. Will I remember the way he loves to play with my hair before bed and the way he used to play with my hair to sooth himself. I am aware that won’t happen forever.
My daughter is doing something cute and adorable every day! Will I remember how her face lights up the moment she sees me after she wakes up in the morning, or the smile I get as she looks at me before nursing. How about the way she strikes my chest while she nurses for comfort. I had forgotten that my son used to do it. It’s the best feeling.
The big things are easy to remember, but it’s the little moments that make each day so special. It all happens so fast, and passes with the blink of an eye. I am thankful for this blog and I hope it will keep track of what I want to remember. I am so thankful that I get to be a mom and watch my children’s life unfold right before my eyes. This is a special time and I do my best not to take it for granted. Please let me remember…
