Tiny hand
Patting me
On the back
Head quietly
On my shoulder-
Hands folded
Held still
Near your face
As I tuck you
Snuggly in bed-
Seemed like
You were too big
To be tucked in
Staying up
Later than
Mom and dad
A sweet
Reversal of roles
The big kid
Coming in
To tell us goodnight-
I don't remember
When any of those
But they did-
And that's ok

Preparing to be a grandma has me thinking about those early days and years of motherhood. They change so fast.

We are looking forward to welcoming sweet Emilia June very soon! πŸ’—

  1. I’m so happy for you, Kelley! It’s such joy to love grandchildren. They are a gift to us in this season of our lives. I celebrate with you! I have another grandson due to arrive in June! I’m as excited about this one as I have been about each one. It never gets old! πŸ’œ
