i love

the smell of his head with lingers of babyhood
the smell of her milky breath
the puff of air that hits my ear when i lift her over my shoulder

reliving the hundred or so unique, wild, delightful moments of each day as i wade through and sort the hundred or so random stashes of things, my silent nightly ritual

listening to two beings breathing over the monitor as the moon rises outside
realizing over and over that i have absolutely no control and that i don’t want it, anyways

heeding the call of my instincts, stronger now than ever, to be close, to touch, to listen, to flow, to laugh, to let go, to be there every single time you reach for me, absolute presence

scraping off the mashed bananas and crusty rice grains from the cracks in the wooden kitchen table, knowing that i will miss this too

knowing that i grew you once, and that you grow me over and over again

feeling grateful because there is always something new to adore, which helps me feel less sad for every moment already gone

i love…being your mama


What do YOU love?
