Today is Friday and the word for this week is NOTICE.
I have noticed it is the smallest things that make being a parent so special. It is the gentle rock in a mothers hip swaying to and fro to help calm the cranky baby.
It is the quite snuggles where the only sound heard is the gentle breath of your little one
It is the tickles and giggles
The running and playing
The big hugs and small kisses
The crawling to walking to running
The babbles the quickly turn into sentences and real talking
The growing up way to fast, wishing there was a way to stop time in this moment so it can last forever
The small things change is from within. They change us from being me focused to the next generation focused. Being a parent is a precious gift for a moment in time you are their everything and then before you know it they are gone.
Gone and living life on their own
Your noisy home will soon be quite
The toys scattered here and there will slowly find their home
And you will finally be alone
Make the most of the special moments. They will be gone before you know it.
