Perfect Moment Monday

Perfect Moment Monday is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between. For more Perfect Moments, go HERE



Moment #1: She loves wearing it. I could not take it off of her. A friend's daughter gave it to us and now the sparkling annoying thing is on her. And she is bouncing on my bed, looking at it in the mirror. I find it irritating and too white and sparkly and definitely not warm enough for the cool spring air. I also see how she loves it. And she stops bouncing and moves her arm gracefully in a perfect ballet move that I have no idea where she has gotten it from. The costume stays on her throughout the night. She sleeps in it. In the morning, I take it off of her, I wash it (hand wash only) and carefully air dry it. The next day it is on her again. And while I make sure she puts clothes over it when we go out on yet another cool spring day...I have to say...the costume suits her fine.

Moment #2: Last night he fell asleep on the couch (he was able to stay up because its school vacation week; I was upstairs trying to put a stubborn toddler down to bed). Dad took him up. Surprised that he was asleep already, a few minutes later I took a break from convincing her to sleep so that I could say good night to him. He was so asleep that he was completely oblivious to me. And I felt hurt that I could not say good night to him. So this morning, when I felt his long, lanky body up against my back, I turned around and hugged the snot out of him. Snuggling my little (not so little) guy was the perfect way to start the morning!

Here from Lori's PMM Post...

I really enjoyed your two perfect moments today. Not unlike what Lori's shared, it seems like you are really appreciating having arrived at your "Promised Land" too. I am proud of you and am glad that you are letting your children be themselves and express their beauty and uniqueness in their own ways, especially doing things like wearing their favorites tu-tu all the time! Sooo cute! Also glad to hear you got some good snuggle times in with your son this morning! Hope you have a wonderful week with lots more perfect moments! :)
I love both of those moments! Sleepy snuggles are the best!

I love the way kids move. So un-self-consciously.
