Do You Think They Know?

Do you think they know how much we love them??  Or is it something that they will never know the scope of until they have children of their own?  Do they have any clue how much we revel in their simply being themselves every day.  How I wish that there was more time to soak up their personalities.  Do they know that we wish that we could video tape every single second of every single day so that we will never forget anything.

Do you think he knows that a little piece of my heart broke when I signed him up for pre-school for this fall yesterday?  It means he’s growing up, like he should, but he’s becoming such a big boy and a little bit less of my baby.  Do you think he realizes that he hasn’t had a birthday party yet because his mommy doesn’t want him to be 3 yet?

Do you think he knows what is going to happen as soon as his daddy pushes that sled down the hill?  Do you think he knows that we love him more than all the stars in the sky, and he will always and forever be our little baby?  No matter what he does in life, we will always be right behind him.  Does he know that 6am is very early, but I absolutely love our quiet time together each morning?  Or that I love the smell of his hair after a bath, or that I don’t mind if he still takes a bottle when he’s 12?

Do you think he knows how badly I want to put chapstick on his lips?  I know they hurt, he tells me they do, but he insists on wiping off whatever we put on them.  Does he know that I put Aquaphor on his sippies in a lame attempt to get something on them?  Does he know that I admire his strong will and his determination to have things the way he wants them.

Do you think he knows that when this boo boo happened last night, my heart stopped beating for about 2 minutes?  Does he know that whatever pain he was in, I hurt 10 times more because I couldn’t make it all better?  Do you think he knows that I didn’t want to wake him up every hour last night as much as he didn’t want to be woken up -but the Dr. said to?  Does he know that throughout his entire life I want to be there to catch him every time he falls – physically or otherwise ?

Do you think they know that we would go to the ends of the earth so that they never have to experience one second of pain or hurt??

Do you think they know just how much they have changed our lives for the better??

Do you think they know exactly how much we love them???

I hope they do.

    Beautiful post! Brought tears to my eyes. You capture what it is to have a “mother’s love” and any mom who doesn’t feel this way is missing out!
