And this is one of the best things about being a mom…

Dear Max

I like nothing better than acting like a juvenile and playing around with you. Tickling you, chucking you around, throwing you over my shoulder, doing roly polies, and pretending I’m going to drop you.

You sometimes laugh so hard that you’re on the verge on laughter tears, and just when I pretend that I’ve tickled you for the last time, you look a little longingly, and then we start over.

And this is what it’s all about. The good moments. Hearing that laughter and seeing your eyes crinkle and light up at once. And these moments often come after tantrums, or trying and challenging experiences, or when I’m losing my way.

It’s special Mom-Max time, and it’s how I’d prefer to remember the bulk of this toddler time – rather than the tantrums, tears and tussles (and occasional vomit in my bed).

Thank you once again for showing me fun in the simplest way.

    That is so special! Sometimes it’s easy to forget to have these moments!
