We were all exhausted. Fussy baby. A cough and sniffles. Longing for a shower, a nap, a break.
So when she asked me to play, I had to take a deep breath and challenge myself to say Yes. It would have been easy to say Not right now or Maybe later.
I’m glad I chose Yes and got to connect with this amazing girl. We had a great chat about My Little Pony, hairbrushing, yoga, and so much more. My hope is that these moments remind her that it’s not all about the baby (even though it feels that way much of the time right now). That we want to hear what she has to say, that we care about who she is and what she’s interested in. That we will always have time for her.
Yes. These are the moments that matter most.
