June: Remember This
I was forty-five minutes into the drive when it hit me. They’ll never remember this. They’ll never remember this trip to the children’s museum, for which I have driven through pouring rain, crept through construction slowdowns, and packed half of our pantry. They’ll cry in the line for the carousel, they’ll scream when the electric hand dryers are too loud, they’ll lie face down on the floor when it’s time to go home. I can see these moments like a movie as I’m taking the exit to downtown, still driving us - against my better judgment - to an afternoon at the museum that they’ll never remember.
Motherhood is full of moments they won’t remember. Moments we hope they remember. Moments we pray they forget. Moments of sweetness so intense we wish we could etch them into our own memories, chanting to ourselves “Remember! Remember this!” For our June blog hop, we’ll write about one of these moments.
