Tuesday February 11, 2020 // Bedtime

I’m sitting here rocking my son to sleep. Most nights he’ll fall asleep on his own but tonight he needed a little extra help. I’m sitting here, staring at him, knowing I can put him down at anytime and he’ll stay asleep but I don’t want to.

Recently I’ve been reminding myself that I won’t be here for forever so I need to take in the moment I’m in. Maybe it’s the whole recent Kobe Bryant thing. I don’t know. But it helps me to put things in perspective.

I won’t be here for forever. But I could stay forever right here. Rocking my kid to sleep. Knowing that I would do anything for him.

There’s a mountain of dishes to do and bottles to get ready for daycare tomorrow. It’ll get done. For now, I’m going to spend another few minutes taking in what I have in front of me.

I won’t be here for forever. But I could stay forever right here.
