Last week in my working community there was a sad, sad tragedy where a young child lost their life. I don't want to post details as I don't want anyone to really know where I work and it was played out in the local media quite a bit.
It just really stuck with me this weekend. Last week after it happened I just felt devastated. When you have kids, these things become so much more difficult and hard to be around than they were before. I came home and got on the floor with my babies to play with them. I just wanted to be with them so badly. Once bedtime rolled around Ocean began crying. Normally hubby protests me putting him in our bed but that night be didn't give me any grief.
Everytime Ocean moved or made sweet baby noises or let out a little cry (he is a very restless sleeper)I cried too. I was just so thankful to hear those little noises, but sad to my core that another mommy was going to bed that night never to hear those sweet sounds again. It is so heartbreaking. Every single day I love my babies more and to think of spending years with my babies and then one day they are gone out of the blue is more than I can handle sometimes.
I spent lots of snuggle time with the monkey's this weekend. I just wanted to take a moment to remind you to give the people you love all the affection you can every chance you get because you just never know when it might be your last chance.
