Perfect Moments

I recently read a book that said that once you become a mother, there are no perfect days but a million perfect moments.
I have been working on focusing more on those perfect moments. I realize they usually occur when I am thinking of things I SHOULD be doing. Like dishes, cooking, or whatever.
I already had my perfect moment today. I am sure there will be others.
I laid Carson on my bed and laid next to him. For some reason, this tickles him... maybe because I am at his level.
He was getting tired and I thought "I should put him in his crib so I can start cleaning."
But I paused and stared into his big, beautiful blue eyes.
He reached out and took my hand and stared back. He continued to stare at me until he closed his eyes and drifted off to sleep.
So sweet and innocent. How lucky I am.
