A Beautiful Day
Sunday. What a beautiful day. It has been a long time since I've had a day to myself. I am not counting my blogging trips(which have been wonderful) or even a day that I am completely alone. I am referring to a day that I am home alone, with my son, without having a care in the world. For the last six weeks (at least) I have been running, running, running. This frenzy of activity has given me very few moments of alone time to enjoy with my son. Sunday was a special day because Mekhi and I hung around the house, watched movies and slept. It was a glorious, glorious day. Although there were moments like nap time, when I wished for some time alone to catch up on my work, I realized that nothing beats quality time with my child- the work will get done. The comfort that we both derived from him laying on my chest as we napped together for hours on end was priceless. I was reminded of his newborn days when this was a daily occurance. Memories of simplistic days like Sunday bring the biggest smile to my face. I plan on doing more often - the days of being able to baby him will be over quickly than I want to imagine. I am going to take advantage of every moment I can.
