Me and the Multi-Superhero - Memories Captured

Your sleepy eyes rounded the corner to the bright kitchen.
Your voice not quite ready to talk.
Your blanket snuggled up close to your shirtless belly.

"Can we lay down in your bed together?"

I'd never lay myself back down in my bed with sweaty running clothes.
How could I resist your invitation?
You know what today is.

I had a shower to take and another little boy to get ready.

You handed me the covers as I laid my head next to yours.
We shared my pillow and talked while Wyatt and daddy got ready.
"I'm cold, mommy"
Your voice was so sweet.

We drifted off to sleep.  I don't think I've ever enjoyed a 6:30am nap.
"I had such a good dream.  I'm excited for today."
Our first official one on one day.

You joined your class up on the wall and didn't care that I was not right by your side.  You sat and smiled and were so polite.

Your words never as frequent as they are at home.

But your smile is always the same; full of life and then some.

You're shy but you're not.

You're comfortably quiet around girls and boys and teachers and bees.

You didn't complain when mommy needed her stuff done too. 

I had SUCH an awesome day with YOU!

I'm joining Galit and others in this awesome link-up.  Check her out.  She will leave you yearning to be a better mom.  Then check out the others and their greatness.


  1. Ohmyheart, sweet friend! I'm teary eyed reading this because I so get it!

    My littlest is getting days like this for the very first time, too! From just us to field trips, le sigh - I feel like I can finally SEE him!

    It looks like it was a beautiful day spent with beautiful-as-ever you! Love!


  2. I love the idea of one-on-one time. It's so needed, isn't it?

  3. Your boy is so handsome, Tayarra! All three of them :D So precious to spend that one-on-one time with your boy.

  4. Oh this special time. Love this so much.

  5. That is such an incredible photo! I love the effects with the text. What an awesome little guy!
