Nap time is one of my favorite times of the day. And not solely because I get a break from the constant chatter (seriously -- do all 3 year olds talk non-stop? Because this kid just does not let a single silent second go by -- each and every moment he is awake is filled with his voice). I love that I can take the time to really look at my son. I love the innocence of his face, his long lashes resting on the apples of his cheeks. I love hearing the occasional snore -- it makes me giggle every time.
But it's so bittersweet for me. I love every minute of being this little boy's mother. And I want more of this. Each minute that I spend with him I'm both happier than I ever imagined possible and saddened that there is a very real chance that I may not get another child to go through these stages with. But, still, I'm hoping and praying that I will.
