Tonight as I was tucking Charlie into bed, we sang one of our favorite songs, "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star." As I covered him up, I said to him, "Goodnight, Charlie My Star." In his sweet, sleepy little boy voice he replied, "Goodnight, Mommy My Moon," It was one of those precious, fleeting moments of motherhood that I wished I could bottle up and keep forever.
He is growing and changing so fast these days, and I often find myself reminiscing about days gone by. I do love now, but sometimes I just miss the simpler times from when he was younger. Truth be told, we are all working hard right now, and our days are busy and sometimes overwhelming. I often feel like my time with him is too full of all the things we have to do and not full enough of the things we want to do.
Tonight served as a powerful and precious reminder of how each and every moment we share with our little ones is special. How each and every moment matters, especially to our children. And...because I can't help myself, I'll leave you with a recent picture of the little man himself, plus his parents. :) See what I mean...he's growing up and changing so fast these days!
