Five Minute Friday- Perspective

Its Friday Morning and I saw this idea on the Gypsy Mama blog. Although, I am not doing exactly the same challenge (linking to friends etc..), I thought it would be a fun idea.
Here's what to do:
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking
2. Comment if you do one too, so I can read yours! :)

Here we go! Starting the clock...

 Cuddles. I don't get many. My boy is on the move from early morning till he crashes at night. And forced cuddles just aren't the same. Its funny how the best part of when your child is sick, is that they are cuddly. I waited a long time to get those snuggles, and so if there is a moment (literally, a moment) where he wants to hug, kiss, snuggle, hold my hand, touch my face, anything, my whole world comes to a halt! Laundry, dishes, emails, packing & organizing can wait. NOTHING compares to having those chubby little hands around my neck and having his cheek smooshed against mine. I get butterflies in my stomach a lot when I think about loving him. He is such a cool kid. I love watching him get a personality, love music & reading (just like his Mommy & Daddy) and get his own sense of style. This usually consists of gumboots, a backwards hat & a guitar. He is also getting very curious. This leads to mischief. Yesterday, he decide to draw circles (i know they were circles because he told me after) on our bedroom wall with a pencil (thank goodness!) What a kid! I need to cherish these things more, I think. One day, I will look beside me and see a grown boy, and this time will be over. So, grubby hands & all, i wouldn't trade this for anything!

A long time ago, my little artist coloured what looked like the Vancouver skyline in purple crayon all down the hallway in our apartment. Ahh, the memories. Here's wishing you many more of those stop everything and cuddle moments with your sweet and busy boy. He reminds me a lot of my David (gumboots, hat, etc.)
