Thanksgiving a retrospective

As Thanksgiving day was coming to a close T asked me ever so sweetly to cuddle with him....."Mom now that E is here you never cuddle with me, can you cuddle me to sleep tonight? I lay next to him and willed my mind to remember this moment, burn it in my cortex. How long do I have until he decides cuddling with mom is for babies? One day my son will be a man and all I will have to hold is this memory. I held him close and listened to the sweet sound of him sleeping, each breath a precious symphony. At times my life can be so crushingly beautiful , that I am nearly paralyzed with gratitude. I am gifted with these moments each day all I have to do is slow down and embrace them.

Sarah, this just made me cry. It scares me to death that one day my kiddo won't want me to snuggle with him anymore. Thanks for reminding me to cherish the moments when my toddler insists that mommy MUST hold him (regardless of how bad I have to pee), because after all they are numbered.
