Among the hustle and bustle of the day, most of us find at least a few precious moments where we're still with our children, when we're giggling with them or just quietly soaking them in... And when we're feeling stressed or overwhelmed, those moments keep us going. They fill our hearts with so much joy and make all the hard times worth it.
For me, those moments are often at bedtime. There are other precious moments throughout the day too, but there's something especially special about cuddling up with my big girl in her pink and purple bedroom, reading a book and saying prayers. And there's nothing sweeter than rocking my 21 month old to sleep while singing "You Are My Sunshine" (and yes, I still rock her to sleep).
Those precious moments, and specifically those bedtime routines, are engrained in my memory for -- hopefully -- a lifetime. They are some of the sweetest ones we share.
