So...Mama Lion

Lately I have gotten the most satisfaction from just lying on the ground and letting my kids climb and crawl all over me.  Whether on the floor in the playroom, on my bed, or on the grass under a tree, this is my most favorite form of quality time with the kids. 

It doesn't require getting in the car, putting on shoes, a stroller, a diaper bag, or getting somewhere on time. We are not rushing through activities, moving from one thing to the next, making sure kids are acting a certain way, not touching things they aren't supposed to, not climbing on things, not running away, or not bothering other people.  There is no agenda, no expectations, and no limit to this time we spend together.  It is time literally doing nothing, but sometimes nothing really means everything.

This time is full of hugs and kisses, laughing and giggling, tickling, singing, funny faces and funny noises.  It is time when they are everything and there are no distractions.  I feel like a mother lion with her cubs climbing all over her and I absolutely love it.  There is something that feels so good, so natural, and so right about doing nothing but just being together.  It is important time.

These are the moments we can all soak in - time slowed down, spent just being together. 
It is my favorite.

I know it won't last forever, so I'm trying to get as much of this time in as I can.
Everything else can wait, cause I don't want to miss this time with my babies.
