|This is me and Dahlia my now 4 year old when she was little. My children are now 1,2,4 and 7.|
My kids have been sick and yesterday I spent the better part of the day on the couch holding my sick baby and cuddling with my 4 year old while another sick kiddo slept and one played outside. It wasn't a very productive day and the house had to be cleaned that night, but that time was precious. Later that night I found this poem on pinterest I didn't see an author and I think it has been around for some time. It gave words to my thoughts. Sometimes it takes an illness to slow us down long enough to just sit and enjoy our kiddos. Lesson learned. I want to savor these special days, because all too soon they will be out on their own and we will be missing them.
