My New Motto and Shopping Cart Ride

During the last six months, it has been my goal to cherish every moment I have to spend with my sweet little man. It has been hard at times to put aside my obsessive need to constantly busy myself with tasks and focus on precious little moments with Cooper. I feel so lucky to spend each day with him. I want to be sure that when I look back on these times, my memories are of Cooper, and not my daily cleaning, laundry, etc. tasks. I recently saw this poem on someone's Facebook status. I'm quite sure it is not new, but it is new to me. It is perfect for my life right now!

Cleaning and scrubbing can wait til tomorrow,

for babies grow up, we've learned to our sorrow.

So quiet down cobwebs and dust go to sleep.

I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep!

And since I can't bear to have a post without a picture of Cooper...

This was his first official "big boy" shopping cart ride. (We tried unsuccessfully once before!) He made it through most of the shopping trip a happy boy.


  1. Love the new motto. It is hard to leave things undone, isn't it! Thanks for reminding me to take a little time and enjoy my girls today.

  2. This is such a great quote. I saw it on a decorative plaque while I was pregnant, and I often wish I had bought it then. It made me cry at 10 weeks pregnant and it still makes my cry today!
