Mom-In-Training: Precious Moments

One of the most precious moments caught on camera was of my love and me, holding pinky fingers as we slept.

I found this photo on my phone a few days ago; it must have been from the night when she got in trouble from me and cried herself to sleep.

We had a rough day, the two of us, and when it was bedtime, I lay there beside her explaining how words and actions can hurt even mommy and daddy’s feelings. Because we didn’t cry, it didn’t mean that we weren’t hurt.

She was sorry and empathetic. She grabbed my pinky finger and pinky swore to never hurt me or her daddy again. I kissed her forehead and told her it would be alright as long as we all respected and loved each other.

By the time I was done talking, silence had fallen, her tears had dried up and she was peacefully asleep with her pinky finger locked into mine. I soon fell asleep not removing my finger from hers and when I awoke this photo was on my phone.

Daddy must have come in after we fell asleep and captured this moment for me to cherish.

One of the sweetest moments indeed…
