So much for me trying to do a blog every week. I do have some things I wanted to blog about but don't seem to get much time to do them. What I do have time for is to expand on what I write on my Toronto Mom to Mom FB page on other blogs. SO I thought why don't I just do that here?
So I'll try it.
This touched me a lot. Parents with toddlers / preschoolers get the tissues out.
Recently my almost 3 year old has been waking up at night. Even though I'm so tired because I'm also up with my 4 month old I wasn't upset by it. Why? Because I would get to sit in the rocking chair and cuddle him for longer than the 10 secs I get when he is awake during the day. It filled my heart up with joy and wonderful memories. I have a very active, I guess by his age you could call him a preschooler. Often too busy to give a hug longer then 2 secs and forget about even cuddling on the couch, he is too busy doing something with his cars for that. So even though I was totally exhausted I cherished those moments sitting in his room, rocking him to sleep, singing to him again and kissing his forehead. I know this will pass all too quickly and so I'm told he will not be letting me cuddle him when he is 16 or 30. A mom can dream right?
