Yesterday we were eating lunch at home and Ainsleigh was on my lap…she was facing me with her arms tight around my neck. She kept putting her cheek up to my eye promting me for butterfly kisses, each time I would do it she would break out into the sweetest laughter.
Head back, full smile, precious giggles.
I was thinking in that moment how grateful I was to be sitting down, soaking her in. Not rushing through my day to get to the next thing, not checking off to-dos….just enjoying her sweetness, her smallness.
And then I thought it would be fun to put up a “mother’s challenge”. Just something for yourself. To take a day or week or month and do things that are extra sweet or special for or with our little ones. Everyone’s lists might look different.
I took the rest of the day yesterday and today to go be inspired by this list. Watch the joys on your tiny ones faces as you snuggle in to rock them to sleep or stay up past bedtime for an ice cream cone. priceless.
