Life's Little Moments

Life's little moments.  They warm your heart, bring (happy) tears to your eyes, make you feel like all is right with the world. 

Case in point:  last night, I was getting the boys ready for bed.  Then I said to Will, "C'mon sweetie, let's go to your room, it's time for night-night."  And then he smiled at me and crawled down the entire length of the hallway with his toy car and gleefully said "Vroooooooommmmm!" as he rolled it along the floor. 

He could have just gotten up and walked to his room.   But that small little moment just made me melt, seeing the utter joy on his face.  

I want my kids to be kids for as long as they can.  I want them to be happy and innocent and without worry for as long as they can.  Lord knows there's enough time for all that other crap.  

These faces bring so much joy to my life.  I can't tell you enough how much they have changed me as a person and taught me the true meaning of unconditional love.  

I'm so proud to be their mama!!! 



  1. when I become a mom, I hope I remember to let my kids be kids and not worry about the small things. Sometimes I can be a little OCD and I can focus on the things that "must be done", but I want my kids to enjoy life as a kid and not be focused on chores every day or getting to bed exactly at 7pm or whatever. What a beautiful reminder to enjoy life! :)

  2. Being a mom is the absolute best, isn't it! :)
