Moments I Cherish

I've been running behind since 2 o'clock this morning when Asher decided sleep was ridiculous and shouldn't we all be up playing and giggling anyway.  We had an early appointment with Early Intervention that left me even further behind so by the time we got to bedtime I was scrambling to get things together to get the baby in bed at a decent time since he was loudly proclaiming that the time was about to pass us by.

As I was getting milk together, I noticed that things had gotten pretty quiet in the baby's room.  I strained my ears to hear what was going on and I heard Damek's voice.  He was reading a story, to Asher.  He had grabbed some books out of Asher's bookcase, climbed into Asher's crib, snuggled up with him and started reading.  For the next 10 minutes, Damek stayed with Asher, reading story after story, talking to him, snuggling him, until I could get in there and finish up the bedtime routine.

These are the moments I love as a mom.
