Jellybean and I went to the zoo today. Walking up the hill to go see the elephants and giraffes, we’re wandering slowly, plodding along, both of us lost in our own thoughts. Beside me, I hear a little voice say, “Mama hand.” I reach down, he takes my hand, and we continue on. I can’t help but beam.
Yes, baby boy, I will hold your hand.
These are the moments that motherhood is all about.
