Slow down. Put away distractions. Make yourself a cup of warm tea and sip it while sitting, not rushing around. Watch your babies prance on the couch. Put a couple drops of lavender oil in their bath and make them giggle. Have a day where you only let him wear diapers and sun hats. Take lunch to the library or park. Watch them smile. Feel yourself smile back. Hold them close when they ask for snuggles. Hold them closer when they don’t. Teach them how to read by flipping the pages one by one. Sit back, and watch them try. Get carry out for supper. Show them how to really eat chips and salsa. Hoist them up on your hips and belly and back, they are only so little for so long. Let her put your make up on. Let her wear your heels. Take time to show them little things like peeling a carrot or folding a towel. Let them run barefoot everywhere and wear snow boots on sunny days. If she sees a puddle, tell her to go for it, laundry takes all but a minute. Slow down. Savor life. Hold onto these moments tightly.
