Stolen Moments

It’s so easy to get caught up in the day to day lists of things to do before I can sit down and relax for a few minutes at night. So easy that I often forget that spending time with Phoebe and Sophie while they are awake is really the most important thing I can do. Last night Phoebe asked me to go sit in Daddy’s rocking chair with her (the recliner). I had already sat in the recliner with them for a few moments and was hoping to do the dishes real quick, so I told her no. Then Sophie toddles into the kitchen and starts pulling on my skirt and I realized that taking a longer moment to sit with them was way more important than the dishes at that time. So we all three sat in Daddy’s rocking chair for a little while. After a minute they both wanted down to do their own thing again. I tried to take in the moment as much as possible because I know soon they will not want to sit with me in a rocking chair anymore.

  1. True. If Emily comes up to me, wanting to do anything, I try to stop whatever I am doing and play with her. Of course, that is rare since we are going through a Mommy phase right now, but that is even more of a reason why I will stop and play with her whenever.
