moments to savor {1}

with 2 comments

I’m going to start posting about those small, quickly passing moments in life with a preschooler. The one’s that fill your heart to the point of almost exploding with love. They are truly moments to savor.

Instead of a bath, she wants to take a shower tonight. I ask her why and she shows me two heart tatoos, one on each hand. She explains that Auntie gave them to her when they were off on an adventure earlier in the day. She doesn’t want them to wash away!

I turn on the water and she climbs in. She holds her hands out of the water stream as I wash her hair and her body. I turn the water off and wrap her in a towel, pulling her close to warm her up.  As I look closer at the tatoos, I see some letters. She shows me her hands. In the middle of the heart is BFF. “What does that mean?” she says. “Best Friend Forever” I tell her. Without any hesitation, she wraps her arms around me. “It’s you mommy! Your my best friend!” I hold her tightly knowing the moment will not last forever but wishing it would!
