Prior to having a child, I used to be a neat freak. Everything was always clean and mostly organized in some way or another. Once I had a kid, that was kind of thrown out the window. Some days I forgo all the daily cleaning in favor of some fun with my little one. Logan will only be little for so long, and dishes will always be in the sink.
Today we went to the aquarium. Logan ran around from exhibit to exhibit, and his excitement was contagious. People kept smiling at him. He touched a sting ray, and he shouted to me, "Mama! I touched his wing!" He just loved it.
I often think that one of the best things about being a parent, the thing I am constantly trying to become better at is to live in the moment. I need to forget about the laundry, the vacuuming, and dusting and simply live. I need to enjoy the little moments and this little person.
