I had another one of those moments that I never want to forget tonight when I was putting Emma to bed. One of her favorite lullaby's is Rock a Bye Baby but we changed the last line from "and down will come baby, cradle and all" to "and Mama will catch you, cradle and all". Tonight as I was holding her, Emma decided to sing it to me instead and changed the line to "and Emma will catch you, cradle a
nd all" and put her hand on my cheek. In my heart I heard her say that just as I will always be there for her and catch her when she falls, she will be there for me when I fall. I feel like I am falling alot these days-yelling too much, disciplining too harshly, and worrying too much about things that won't matter in the long run instead of spending enough quality time with my children. Despite all of this, Ben and Emma want nothing more than to have me give them hugs and kisses and sing them to sleep at the end of the day. I am truly blessed.
My baby girl.
