To the mother I am now, from years in the future….
Your boys are growing up so fast. Please don’t make yourself too busy and miss it.
Please stop and play when they ask.
Take 15 minutes to cuddle them in bed when they ask, even if you have ‘stuff to get done’.
Please be patient when it’s going to take 20 extra minutes to get the muffins made because they want to help.
Please laugh with them.
Never forget what an privilege it is to get to raise them.
Please always believe in them even when their dreams seem impossible.
Please look into their eyes and make sure they know that in you they always have a place to rest. No need to perform, strive, impress, just be.
Your Future Self
