Any mother will tell you, parenting is all about cherishing the moments.
Moments we collect like marbles in a jar.
Each marble is a memory that you can pull out and roll around in your hand remembering that particular point in your life as a parent.
Memories that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
This evening I added two marbles to my jar.
Tonight when I put my son to sleep he asked to “wok”.
So we rocked.
He snuggled up in my neck and let me sing him two songs I used to sing when he was a baby.
(Insert heart melting marble moment here.)
Then I put him in bed and told him to get rest because tomorrow he would be learning to be a big boy.
He said, “Yes, I peepee in the potty. Daddy peepee in potty, Auntie peepee in potty, Ami* peepee in potty. I go peepee in potty! I love you Ami.”
My baby is growing up right in front of my eyes with a smile on his face.
These are the moments that make parenting the most amazing job in the whole world.
*My son has been calling me Ami for a couple weeks now. Originally we thought it was a lazy combination of Auntie and Mommy, or perhaps Mommy and Emily. My hubs thinks it may be a combo of Mama and Mommy. Either way, at least it isn’t Babe.
