I must remember that soon, my children will not want me to tuck them in, and to treasure every snuggle and snug-as-a-bug-in-a-rug blanket job.
I must remember that they will only be small for a short while.
I must remember that soon, my baby will not want to nurse.
I must remember that soon my baby will stop falling asleep on my chest, and I will miss having the ability to smell his sweet head and listen to his baby snore.
I must remember that soon my children will stop looking to me for guidance when they try new activities.
I must remember that very soon, my baby boy will be running away from me instead of clinging desperately to me.
I must remember that hugs and kisses from my toddler girl are hard won, and every one is like a precious gift from above.
I must remember that the long, sleepless nights spent consoling my teething babies will enable them to be strong, independent, and confident in our love.
I must remember that before we know it, our children will be grown and gone, and we will have all the free time we need to do all the things we want.
I must remember that they will only be small for a short time.
I must remember how deeply blessed I am to have such a wonderful, kind, gentle, loving family.
I must remember to never take one single moment for granted.
