Taking it in

She smells like pumpkin muffins

and clam chowder

as I snuggle her in for naptime

Soft and sweet

grabbing for a hand to hold onto

and an arm to nuzzle

He giggles as he sits next to me

watching Charlie Brown’s Thanksgiving

as I type on the same screen

He holds my arm

puts his head on my shoulder

and we both shake with his laughter

Taking it in slowly and sweetly

quiet time and snuggles

soft touches and belly laughs

Taking it in

  3. Beautiful. If only all moments could be like this. I’m listening to my boy right now through dinos and cars around while I wait for him to do my bidding: pick out a book to read before bedtime. Ah, childhood! It’ll be over all too soon. ­čśë
