Life Lesson 10 - The Cheerio Moments

My day goes something like this:
Wake up, not to an alarm but to an 18 month old who is up anytime between 5:30am and 6:30am. (when its my turn, great tip, my husband and i take turns so there is no cranky argument in the morning) but regardless of turns, i am up by at least 7am.
Then the baby gets milk and breakfast, i get ready for work and then leave to a now crying baby who can say no mommy bye bye! kills me every time......
But there is this moment in the morning between the milk and the breakfast and before my mad dash to look like a marketing director and not a tired mommy, where i have my cheerio moment.
She sits with me on the couch while i watch the news and we have a little bowl of cheerios on our lap. 2 hands reach into the bowl, one tiny and one needing a manicure........and we raise the cheerios to our mouth at the same time and crunch, which she giggles at every time......she looks at me with these big eyes and smiles like it is her favorite time of the day and i smile knowing it is mine.

Those Cheerio moments as i call them are so precious to a working mom like me. The times when i can show her at this age that mommy will make time even in a rushed tired morning state.

The life lesson here is to find your Cheerio moment with your family and lose yourself in that special moment , it will give your kids memories of childhood of special mommy moments even if your a Driven Chick :-)
