Don’t Let Go

One of my new favorite Claire-things…

You get a little cranky.  Maybe you’re hungry, maybe you’re tired, or both.  

I go to put you in your car seat or your high chair, strap you in, and just as I am about to let go, you grab my shirt sleeve and pull me closer for one last hug, clinging to me, burrowing your face in my neck, as if to say…  

Just a few more moments, Mommy, please. I’m not ready to let go yet.

  1. Claire is such a sweetie! Don't you wish you could just bottle those moments? So that when they have temper tantrums all day you can remind yourself of their sweet qualities (OK I may be referring to Avery now…)
