It has been a long and hard week. I missed my babies terribly and I think they missed me too. I had to be away from them for 12 hours a day most of the week. Friday morning, Ethan wanted to me hold, hug, and play with him. He so rarely does that. So, I of course obliged as long as I could and soaked up every second of it. At bedtime, he just wanted to cuddle with me. Since he was 18 months old he preferred to sleep close to his dad. I woke up to use the bathroom and when I returned they were holding each other. Does it get any better? Is there anything more satisfying to a mother's heart? The only thing that comes close is being the cream in their cookie sandwich. Right now, I am sandwiched between my beautiful babes and I wouldn't have it any other way.
