Last weekend I was running errands and the kids suggested we stop by the splash pad park for a bit. We had swim suits in the van but no towels. Of course, wet car seats were a small price to pay for their shrieks of delight and huge grins. It was by far the highlight of my day. (Bless the inventor of splash pads!)
Motherhood joy comes in spontaneous, fleeting moments. You have to savor it while you can.
