Today I put Orion down for nap time. Usually a ten minute process involving little ants, music and a story turned to an hour. This was not Orion’s doing, but rather my own. Lying there next to him, my mind spinning with the to do list, I decided today would be different. With my eyes partially closed, the pretend heavy breathing, I watched Orion go to sleep. His hands waving in the air, focused on some fictitious scenario that unfolded in his mind, I smiled. Eventually arms dropping, he snuggled up to his paw patrol blanket and his heavy breathing started. I smiled again, watching his little chest rise and fall. I will never get today again.

Happily married to an absolute dream come true woman, Ami. Who has blessed me with two absolute dream come true children, Orion and Cassi. Now my goal everyday is to do life with my children. Whether I go shopping or in the kitchen cooking, my children will be right there with me. Talking through my actions, involving them in decision making and understanding options available. Pitching tents, trails to hike and adventures to come, they will be my side. View more posts
