The boys and I have this fun thing we do before bed. I just love it and treasure it because I know that it is one of those things that will end in a few years. Yup, I get the poochey lip when I consider that this is time-limited.
Tonight as I was tucking Drew into bed, he said, “Mommy, let’s do ‘butterfly kisses’.” So we did “butterfly kisses.” I then said, “How about ‘Eskimo kisses’?” It is so sweet to share these precious moments with my cute little guys! I love the fact that I can still give them huge “smoochies”, as Drew calls them and great big “bear hugs.” Why do I so easily forget this when I tire of messes and behaviors that need to be improved?
Lord, remind me that today is such a blessing and treasure that can only be enjoyed today.
