It is the sleepless nights sitting up with the baby with colic or sick child, it is the endless worrying and concern, scraped knees and broken hearts, reliving events from your own childhood through fresh eyes and new wonder and excitement. It is the baby's breath and toddler kisses, outstretched arms and full body hugs using every ounce of strength and first time he or she tell you "I love you". It is endless amounts of laundry, occasional feelings of being a short order cook, wearing butt grooves in the rocking chair, lack of privacy and never getting to go to the bathroom by yourself. It is magical kisses that can make everything better and truly loving the macaroni necklace your 4 year old gives you. It is this and so much more.
I was super tired when I took this. Sometimes you can't help but get tired when you are rocking and your toddler is all snuggled up next to you.
