my life right now is brim with tender moments like that one. my days are made up of increasing tantrums, hundreds of little messes to clean up, groggy early mornings, and sharing stress with my spouse -- and there's a lovely, cool stream of sweet slices of time cutting through it all.
yesterday i laughed so hard that my sides ached while watching moses's silly antics in the bath.
my little son is increasingly giving me kisses spontaneously.
when i come home from the gym in the mornings both of my boys are sparkling with excitement and love, and when ian gets home from work in the evenings moses can hardly contain his joy.
each night as i lay my drowsy baby in his crib, my heart feels like it is clobbering all my other organs because it's swollen with so much love.
indeed, this chapter of life is so sweet.
