the little things

...are the most important
it was almost six years ago when my first baby was only one
as I was rocking her sweetly to sleep I made the conscious decision that this is what I want to do
some believe that it is important for their child to learn to fall asleep on their own
I definitely see the simplicity
but for me I reflected on how little time we actually have to cradle our most precious creations
that day I thought at best it would be around only three years that I would get that beautifully sweet opportunity to cradle and rock my little one and I was going to take full advantage

now here I am on #2 my rough, brave little man
and as I sometimes consider how easy it would be if all I had to do was lay him in his bed at nap time
it's these moments that remind me how truly special, important and irreplaceable
these little things are
