pitter patter

Sometimes I wonder how I will survive 20 years from now. That these times I'm in right now might simply be the highlight of my life. Those tiny fingers, chubby cheeks, the little ones following me everywhere (and I mean absolutely everywhere). How they want to be with me. What if this is it? How can I live with a quiet house and no tiny legs pitter pattering everywhere. The day will come when they leave... when they think someone else is their "BEST", then what.

Oh it hurts my heart to think of them all grown up, distant - perhaps in body and in heart.

So what do I do?

I leave the house's messes, the phone calls for appointments, the way overdue thank you cards and I nuzzle my nose in that soft little neck. I listen and delight in the tickling squeels and I savour, savour, savour every moment....

Oh My!
I got stuck here reading your posts this morning instead of finishing my visits with the rest of the artists on PPF but I couldn't leave a good read!
Then I baked some Banana Bread, made some pudding and jello for my daughter and me and came back to read your thoughts.
My kids are still at home ( my son works away from home for 2 weeks) but I know it wouldn't be forever.

Enjoy your special moments.
