"...for one day you'll realize they were the big things."
My mom had this quote sitting in our dining room growing up. I've never forgotten it, and now as a mother myself, I strive to make it my life's motto. I bet you feel the same way. You want to remember the way they snuggled into you post-afternoon nap, their chubby little fingers, or the way their eyes lit up when they told you all about what they learned at school.
I'm a lover of homemade quilts and belly laughs. Laundry hanging in the setting sun, and pudgy feet covered in dirt.
In short, I'm here for the memories. The messier, the better.
