Those Fun Times Together

Last night was a great one! After I pick up my son from daycare we lay on the couch together while he drank some milk then we sat on the floor and played. We even had "supper" (Peanut butter sandwich) sitting on the kitchen floor while playing with playdough, making a Phone for each one of us so we could talk to each other, we also made a microphone so we could sing together, we made a banana so we pretended to be monkey eating our bananas and of course we made a ball. In the midst of all this I manage to put a load in the dryer and one in the washer and then I went to church for our new bible study.

Nights like those made me want to never cook again or do nothing at home but play with my son, who's growing so quickly, I feel that before I can see it happen I'll say something like "hey you want to watch this movie together?" and I would say something like "Uhm ... nope ... thanks Mom, I already have plans for tonight" ... WHAT! WHAT DID YOU JUST SAID, YOU MADE PLANS WITHOUT CONSULTING WITH ME??? "sure son, I understand, may be next time".

At the same time I know, life is about balance, I can't be a child again and roll on the floor all evening with my son, I also need to be a good mom and fix something to eat, provide a decent house, clean clothes and all those boring duties that take time from playing with my boy! I just need to enjoy the times that I have - like last night - and treasure them forever!!!!

I love this picture! You too are too cute. Enjoy these small moments in your life together. Those will be the ones to carry you when you need a "pick me up".

love you! Anna
