At least he stacked the tubs. That’s an improvement. Why do we pick up the same toys countless times?
Because someday they won’t need us too.
Someday my son will no longer love to play dinosaurs with me. All too soon the days of morning snuggles, sharing a bowl of cereal (even though his own bowl is literally a foot from mine), the chocolate milk negotiations, falling asleep in my arms as we walk from the park….all of these things are temporary and we will miss them with a vengeance when they are gone.

The woes of motherhood.
