A Mommy Moment

Isn't it amazing how, as a mom, the small, seemingly insignificant little things bring so much joy into our lives? Today I was in the shower with Anna (we don't have a bathtub) and her hair was full of shampoo. Normally I have to use a cup, fill it with water, and gently pour it over her head to rinse her hair. (Keep in mind we don't have a water heater, so we are talking about cold water here!) But today she leaned back and let the water from the shower run over her head and face. I was utterly delighted by this act of bravery! I chuckled to myself later when I thought about how much joy I received from that one little moment. It's good to be a mommy.

It seems like as they get older, these moments seem to come more often.

Great Mommy Moment!

I love those moments! Aren't they great? I love having those moments with Kathryn! (With Anna too, but like Lauren said, they seem to come more often the older they get!)

I love those moments, too! There's nothing like them, I would never have realized being a mom was so rewarding!

Plus, they do love bath time. :-) Or my daughter does, anyway. But then that's usually warm water... lol
