I was looking through some old drafts that I never posted and found this blog entry I wrote when Parker was just a newborn. For some reason I forgot or decided not to post it. After looking at the tender moment in the picture. . . it startled me as I read the first line. "every single room in my house was a mess . . ." Long gone are the feelings of wishing my house was cleaner. Did I end up with a clean house that day . . . who cares. Oh what I would do to hold that little newborn of mine again. He was so small, so happy to be here and so beautiful. I decided to post this as a reminder to me . . . remember the better part.
It makes me think of the poem cross-stitched on my Aunt Lisa's wall when I was a teenager. . .
Cleaning and scrubbing
Can wait till tomorrow
Babies grow up
We've learned to our sorrow
So quiet down cobwebs
Dust go to sleep
I'm rocking my baby
Cause Babies Don't Keep!
When I took this picture, every single room in my house was a mess. No exception.
I just caught them looking at each, talking to each other.
Gazing at each other totally oblivious to everyone else.
It was a beautiful moment.
A Little Lesson
I'm so glad I stopped cleaning and picked up the camera.
