every day during nap time i find myself in the same conundrum.
to lay by your side and watch you sleep or not.
you see, watching you sleep is my favorite.
it's like watching the most beautiful picture of pure innocence and peace.
your soft smooth skin.
the rise and fall of your chest.
tiny toe and finger twitches.
the roundness of your full baby belly.
the sound of you breathing.
and the warmth of your body.
but there's dishes to do and there's laundry to fold.
so today, like most days,
i choose to join you there,
in our spot on the couch,
cuddled in your warmth,
beneath the comfort of
our favorite fuzzy blanket
and the whirring of the fan.
because one day i'll long for these moments.
so i'm bottling this one up.
the dishes will be there tomorrow.
and the laundry will have to wait.
