My heart

I still miss Deaglan when I'm at work. I have my work space covered with snapshots of him as you can probably guess. But there are moments each day when I feel a wave of separation that feels like a physical wound. Last night after work as we were all three playing in the living room, I felt such joy just watching him laugh at my husband's antics. I feel so grateful for the two of them in my life!


  1. Yes, you have to cherish those moments. Mommy-guilt is awful. I try not to dwell on the "away" moments. I aim to be completely present when I am with him. :)

  2. What a beautiful post filled with such love!! Deaglan is so lucky to have a mom who loves him so completely :) As always, cute Deaglan pictures. What a smile :)

  3. I'm sorry for the way this will sound, but this was such a good reminder to me to shut my internal voice UP that I need to be doing "more" with my time than staying home with my son. At times, it's tough to go through each and every day with him, (especially when it rains. Or is cold,) but I try to remind myself that working F/T would be difficult, as well.

  4. I can really relate to "wave of separation that feels like a physical wound." I experience this every time I am separated from my children. It seems that my separation anxiety is worse than theirs. However, these feelings help me be grateful for the time I have with them and make the most of it. It goes so fast that we have to cherish everything.

  6. He is a very cute boy!

    I have moments where the love just washes over me too. Motherhood really is life changing.

  7. I know what you mean. But when Amy's at school it's a good time to catch up with myself.
