It's funny. When she's awake I can't wait for nap time so I can start checking things off my to-do list. But once she's asleep.... I find myself wanting to sit and stare. I dream about her future and who she is becoming. I see her running through the yard chasing her brothers with the sun streaming through her wavy blonde hair. I imagine the many places we will travel to and experience together in this amazing world. I picture her curling up in her daddy's lap for story time and hear her giggle as he kisses her on the cheek. These are the moments I live for, we live for. And all that other stuff? The laundry, the dishes, that deadline I have at work. It's going to have to wait.
