Lately, I have been waking before the boys and have been using those minutes to catch up on emails and blogs so when the boys rise from their long night of slumber, full of energy, I am ready to give them my full attention and I am not distracted by this machine, that I must admit, I am slightly addicted to.
When I read posts like this one from the blog titled Moments With Love I am reminded to absorb each moment the day will bring. It is a single blog post like this one from the blog This Isn't Getting Any Easier that reminds me that these days as a mother of two are flying by so fast.
So tomorrow when we wake in our house, we have no where to be, no one we are committed to. Tomorrow will be a day full of "get to moments". I have written about the "get to" moments as a mom. Tomorrow I will pay a little closer attention to....
....hearing Charley pitter pat into the bathroom and then bound back to his bed to wait until a 7 appears on his clock.
.....hearing Henry yell, "MAMA!" when he is ready to get up.
.....lifting him up and out of his crib and having him respond, "Charley? stairs?"
.....making them breakfast and listening to them be silly while they gobble it up.
.....helping them pick out their clothes (it won't be long until I have no say in this).
.....deciding on what we will do with our time.
.....getting down and playing farm with Henry.
.....listening to Charley tell me about something Star Wars while I load the dishwasher.
.....a game of Go Fish, Uno, or Sorry.
.....zipping jackets and buckling seat belts.
.....changing Henry's diaper as he lays and and babbles about everything and anything.
.....reading stories and rocking Henry before naptime.
.....listening to the boys squeal when they here daddy walk through the door.
.....dinnertime as a family.
.....and so on.
Tomorrow I get to be a mom, a mom of two boys who I get to spend my days raising. Tomorrow I will wake up to the gift of a positive perspective and I will see more 'get' to moments than 'got' to moments.
What do you "get to" do tomorrow?
