To Feel Needed..

I spend each and every day from sun up till sun down and many times through the night holding, loving, and providing for my littles.  We seem to spend a lot of time rushing around trying to get here and there or simply trying to maintain the "clean path" in our home during the day.  As each day comes to an end, we are all tired and sometimes irritated.  I strive to make it through each day with a smile on my face and I SO look forward to my alone time at night.  If my hubby is home, I usually get about 5 - 10 minutes of me time to do what I need to do before bed.  Though I love this time, my children aren't always fond of it... 

Tonight, I changed my clothes, washed my face, and brushed my teeth to the sound of little tears.  Addie cried and moaned almost the whole time I was in the bathroom.  I knew she was fine with her Daddy but my heart began to swell quickly with thoughts.  Thoughts about her, and her sweet face.  Thoughts about what might be going through her mind...  So, like all Moms do, I rushed through my "me" time to get to Adeline.  

I walked in to the family room to see her little eyes squenched and full of tears.  As I stood beside her staring at her sweet trembling lips, she peeked at me from one eye and slowly began to grin.  She was happy to see me, I was happy to see her, and for whatever reason tonight, I could tell... she needed me.  

You know, that's a wonderful feeling, a feeling you don't ever want to forget, and one that will be cherished for years to come.  It's the small things in life that mean the most...

This stage is hard, when they only want mommy! My 2 year old can still be like that at times and I think it is wonderful. He is one of the only people who knows he couldn't live without me and communicates it often, running to snuggle in my lap, wanting to be near me everywhere I go. It's wonderful to be needed & feel needed
