The kids, happily playing in the bath, gave me a few minutes of peace. My desk is right outside the bathroom and I was listening to them splash and play and laugh. Soon I catch a little blur go by, giggling. Elizabeth laughing loudly in the tub while a little wet naked baby darts into the kitchen. I grab his towel and run after him but he is quick. After a minute of chasing him, he realizes "Hey, its COLD!" and runs into my arms and the warmth of his towel. Still excited from his voyeur run, he giggles and shivers in my arms as I warm and dress him. Happy and cozy, he was asleep in his bed in minutes.
These are the moments that make being a mom worth it.
