Take Good Care of This MOMENT
It is 3 am
This is my moment
This is how the story goes.
A 2 year old being weened from the paci...He lost his last paci yesterday. My husband said his 3rd birthday he would pull the plug...pun intended. So with a week until his birthday, he lost the last one we had in the house.
He was fine all day, a little cranky but thinking we can get thru this...cut to 3 am. We awake to screams of panic. No paci to be found, he is searching everywhere and reaching out to us. He just knows we have it. 10 minutes later, we are all in jammies headed to the 24 hour store I hate the most but love so much tonight.Okay, okay here is the moment. It is dark, quiet and baby is screaming, but the surroundings are perfect. It is a cold winters night, with rain falling and everything is glistening. It is BEAUTIFUL.It is rare we get weather like this and it happens most after temps fall and we are all fast asleep.
Well, because of this moment in life, we got to experience it first hand.
We as a family...hearing the rain hitting the windshield, the wipers gliding across to and fro.
All else disappears as I take in this moment of peace and happiness.
Baby is sleeping sound now, passed out on the couch in dada's arms.
It was a learning experience for all tonight and I have to thank Lynn for letting me see a moment for something other than a hectic night...it was a beautiful moment in our lives.
