I made the comment recently on Facebook that sometimes I feel like all I do is the laundry and dishes. Then someone who has grown children made the comment that in a few years I won't have all those things anymore but that will also mean that the hugs and kisses will be gone too.
So it made me realize that as we go into a new year, I need to savor the moments more. I need to focus on not letting the details get in the way. No dust on my furniture (or fans) or dirt on the floor needs to take precedent over my family. I need to savor my moments with my son and my husband. One day the floor will be spotless and my boy will be gone. I'd rather have dirty floors and laundry piled to the ceiling so I don't forget a moment or a day with my son. So keep my laundry basket full, I've got a little boy to mother and love.
