I love being a mom and, this boy I took a picture of will be turning 10 in a few short weeks.. How is that even possible that I have been a mother that long…
He came home from school with a migraine on Monday and slept almost 5 hours. I used to take pictures of my babies sleeping during the day, so when I went to check on him and he was still sleeping.. I thought I had better snap a picture to capture this moment. He will probably be 18 and heading off to college and I will still want to take pictures of him in peaceful slumber.
The reason.. when he sleeps, his face relaxes back to what he looked like as a 2 year old boy. That boy I would watch intently until I could rest easy knowing he was breathing ok.. that boy whose cheeks were so soft and squishable I couldn’t resist kissing them.. that boy who still snuggled with me while watching Bob the Builder.. (umm Can I get a.. Can we fix it?? Yes we can!)
That boy who no longer lets me do any of those mommy things. Growing up is tough on so many levels.. but above all else, I’m glad I get to be that boy’s momma. 🙂
