I treasure these moments
Even though the day-to-day life of a stay-at-home parent involves some drudgery and boredom, there are those transcendent moments that make you happy you're there. While eating, Ben often likes to look out the kitchen window into the backyard, which he was doing this afternoon during lunch. At one point I turned to look out the window with him and together we watched the leaves blowing in the breeze. He let out a little sigh, as if this was everything he hoped life to be. Then he daintily stuck his tongue between his lips and blew a raspberry, spraying pureed apricot on both himself and me.
