Is there anything better than a sleeping baby?
YES! A napping terrible two year old. It’s an amazing thing to observe. All it takes is a little nap to turn a whiny, chaotic, mess of a toddler into an innocent, sweet, and precious baby.
I love watching him sleep. I love watching his chest rise and fall with the rhythmic deep breaths that sleep brings.
As I watch him dream, I pray for him to grow up to be a man of integrity. I pray that the Lord blesses him and keeps him healthy. I pray that the Lord guides me to be a good mother and that He will help me instill in him the virtues that he needs to thrive. I pray that all his dreams come true and I ask for the strength to make it all happen.
This is my daily ritual. It only lasts a moment. The rest of the sweet hour of nap time I try to accomplish some of my never ending chore list. And before I know it, Little Bear is up and back to making messes and driving me crazy.
