Now I read aloud at bedtime chapter books we all three enjoy
Now I pack lunches for school and know what they’re eating
Now they love to surprise me by secretly doing chores without being told
Now the playroom floor is littered with doll dresses and pink Legos
Now the bathroom smells floral and girly
Now I know enough to help with homework
Now the refrigerator door is covered with pictures from art class and homemade magnets
Now shopping for clothes together is fun
Now I ease their hurts with hugs and kisses
So in this moment I pause, not remembering the past or anticipating the future, but celebrating…Now.
