It is coming and its not going to be that far away..... the day neither of my children will be able to take sink baths anymore. My oldest is now 5 and can barely fit.... my youngest, 2 for a few short weeks still, can climb right in.
A few weeks ago big brother was playing outside with his friends and the little was feeling left out. I was washing dishes and he asked if he could help. Well, if you let a toddler help with dishes chances are he is going to get wet and if he gets wet chances are he is going to want even more water..... and so dishes morphed into a sink bath.
For a few moments I continued to put away clean dishes and taking the moment for granted, as all mothers sometimes do, until out of the corner of my eye I saw the most beautiful morning light falling across his tiny shoulders and I ran for the camera.
I continue to try and documents these moments - these very ordinary moments that are indeed the extraordinary part of life. I want to remember this moment forever - him splashing and playing and that gorgeous light - and this moment, this Saturday when he was still small enough to fit in that sink.
