Between all the teething, three year old-ing, and other random bits of drama we’ve been having these days I’m finding a great deal of solace in the parks. The freedom to let them loose and explore the world of textures, colors, tastes and smells around them. The interaction of the varying cultures and languages that the Bay Area brings and the beauty of the outdoors have kept my heart and soul alight. These babies are beautiful. These babies are my world. These babies hold my heart in ways that I didn’t know were possible until becoming a mother.
The phrase ‘quality time, not quantity’ keeps running through my head and I feel those words so deeply lately that the moments of crazy simply slide on by with a shrug and a sigh, while I soak in the moments of silly tickles, pillow fights and giggle fests.
Those are the moments they will remember, forever.
