Plop. Down like a brick.
Ouch. Man, that was quick!
You giggled that giggle that warms and melts souls.
I braced for the numbness to pass.
Did I mention how heavy and hard you plopped down?
Ouch. But that’s okay. Because you are growing everyday.
Very soon. It won’t be cool. To plop on mom’s lap.
So I will take it. Enjoy the moment. For as long as it will last.
Because those moments always pass. Leaving me with the reverberation of your laugh.
Hoping I was present enough to soak in all the details that make being your mom so very rewarding.
