Life is full of moments.
Motherhood. is. full. of. moments.
I've been so grateful for the moments, I've recently had, with my Peanut.
moments where my "baby", on the verge of sleep, looks up at me with eyes that shine, even in the [mostly] darkened room. I stroke my fingers through her hair. She asks, "Mom, what we are doing tomorrow?" I reply, "same ole, same ole". and she smiles. And then, like every other night, I plead with her to stop growing so fast.
I know she will grow. And I know change is inevitable. (There are even some days I look forward to that day.) But, last night, after she had fallen asleep, I stole one more kiss upon her forehead. I am forever grateful for nights like last night. For nights like my birthday [night].
For cake in faces. For cake that tastes as good up my nose as in my mouth.
