Those fleeting moments

I have a toddler. He is such a handful! He is full of energy and loves to get into things. Some days I seem to spend most of my day chasing him out of trouble.

It would come as no surprise then that one of my favorite moments of the day then is when I put Tim down for a nap.

However, its not my favorite because I get some relief from having to be on my toes so much. The reason I like nap time is because of the few minutes I get to spend with Tim alone as I put him down. We might snuggle for a few, butterfly kisses are always on the list and I get to tell him how much I love him.

One of the most important things we as moms need to make sure we do each day is take the time to hug our children and tell them how much they mean to us. I find that if I make sure I spend that few minutes with each kid it also helps me to keep my perspective on how much I love them and why I do what I do. It helps me keep my cool with the kids when things get a little rough.
