This season with little kids goes by so quickly and simultaneously so slowly. It feels like I blink and suddenly three months have passed while at the same time my heart sometimes feels a bit lulled to sleep by the daily tasks of mothering young children. So, in an effort to pay attention, I’ve been writing down the simple things that fill our time together. The extraordinary in our ordinary.
These are the days of…
… playdoh. All the time. Everywhere. And the mama enjoys playing with it almost as much as the toddler does.
… quiet (sort of) mornings with Cade before Savvy wakes up.
… cheerios. Yum.
… slightly damp cheerios. Eeew, gross, I hate them.
… Sophia the First, Little Einsteins, and Daniel Tiger. Ugga Mugga!
… Savvy coming to us with a plan (go to the park, visit a friend, go to Chick-fil-A) and then saying, “Mama, is that a good idea?”
… playing in the kiddie pool or water table.
… Savvy walking around humming to herself. It’s the best.
… pat, splat, pat, splat, pat, splat as Cade crawls around the house on the hard wood floors.
… potty training. She rocks. We rock. I’m just so very proud of all of us!
… “Look, Mommy! It’s just my size!” Said whenever she gets to use a sink with a low counter or a kid toilet. Or really anything that she can use “All by myself!”
… lots of sweet giggles.
… hearing Cade play, play, play in our little kid kitchen. So many things to tap and throw!
… spending most of our time together at home. I’m soaking it up.
