Sometimes You Just Need To See The Bread-Eye

Sometimes nights involve tending to sick littles, ejecting gross pillows out of the humble abode and co-sleeping with the non-sick two year old who’s preferred sleep position feels like a human neck brace.  Sometimes days feel long when you’re cooped up inside, disinfecting, tending to hurt tummies, dodging miniature cars filled with glittery ponies and scraping hardened play-doh off the floor.   Yet wee-ones seem to have a way of drawing us in amidst the chaos and subtly reminding us that their little-hood won’t last forever.  They also project so much hope and resilience in hardship.  Today Lucia delivered that powerful message through her effortless smiles and a newfound super-power while deep in the trenches of a  nasty stomach bug.

Thanks so much for showing me your “bread-eye” kiddo.

  1. She is just too sweet! I hope she's on the mend soon!

  2. I love those moments when you're frustrated or running around like a crazy person and your child does something to just make you stop and laugh. To savor the moment. I hope Lucia is feeling better soon. At least she still had her sense of humor 🙂

  3. My son use to take two bites and say he made a snowman 🙂 Cute picture and I hope she feels better soon.

  8. I got teary-eyed reading this post…it is so true!! We spend so much time waiting and waiting for our kids to grow out of certain phases (which I'm doing now and need to STOP!) and before we realize it they will be all grown up!!! I can't believe my little girl is already 6 weeks!!! Not a long time in the grand scheme of things BUT it just goes to show how fast time flies!!! We need to treasure and appreciate each moment we have with them!
