As moms of teens we don't often get the chance to go back in time to when our kids were little and only wanted us. Tonight I got that chance. I took it and then some.

Earlier today I got a call from the school that my #1 wasn't feeling well. He is not one to 'cry wolf' so off I went to get him. I got him settled on the couch and welcomed #2 home from school and we went about our afternoon. About 30 minutes later we found out exactly why he came home from school. Ahem. (You know. The job that mom always gets?) Luckily it was the end of the work day too and HD had just walked so was able to take #2 to an appointment. A little later I asked if there was anything that I could do for him.

"Yes. Could you sit with me and I can lay my head on your lap like I used to when I was little?"

Yes, Son. Yes I can. You'll never be too big for that, and I'll never be too old.

So we sat that way for more than 2 hours. Me and my baby.

Well that just hit me in the feels! lastnight my second son and I were going through pictures of his baby years. Grad year G8 they wanted baby pics. I miss the cuddle years.
