Five Minute Free Writes – Every week I join a special group of writers to write for FIVE MINUTES. No editing. No revising. Just WRITE. Each week the prompt is revealed Thursday evening. You can find more information here.
This week our prompt is: MISS
Let’s set the timer…..
What will I miss when they grow up? Their goofy smiles? Their contagious laughter? Their silly sayings? Maybe not so much the screeching. Not so much the diapers. I’ll definitely not miss the fighting. But I’ll miss so much.
I already miss so much. I miss the newborn smell. I miss the sweetness of their soft breathing at 2Am. I miss the closeness of the touch. I miss the cuddles. Even though I miss so much, already, there is still more to come.
More late night comforting when they are left out. More tears to wipe away. More cuddles when they are sick. More smiles. More laughter. More silliness. There is so much more to come. How I love each and every stage! I miss the previous stage, but this new one is just as glorious.
And when all of it is gone. When they are all gone, I will be glad for the ache of missing. It will mean I loved them well. It will mean they are precious.
