It is easy to get wrapped up in life, in the big picture, and forget to appreciate the little moments of pure and simple joy.
Monday was beautiful – an example of why people put up with Texas summers.
My Lil Diva, exhausted from her latest I Will Only Nap 30 Minutes pattern, actually slept for almost three hours, giving me some rare uninterrupted time with The Tackler.
To make it more perfect, he’d turned off his super power of Selective Hearing and was on near angelic behavior – earning a lollipop as a reward.
“Mommy, this is the best candy ever!” he told me as he licked the raspberry flavor blow-pop, enjoying the warm afternoon sun on our deck.
I captured his delight on camera – proving true a picture is worth a thousand words.
It was a perfect thirty minutes, as he savored what I’d deemed “inferior” candy as if the finest delicacy in existence. We sat. We talked. He licked.
We enjoyed one another.
Here’s to remembering the little moments your children find joy in – even if it only encompasses a fraction of an oh-so-frustrating day.
