I don’t know about you, but time is just flying by way too fast. My son is literally growing up right before my eyes. I wish I could slow down the hands of time. Every single milestone and new discovery is a valued treasure.
I want to savor every single moment.
And so, over the past two weeks I have missed deadlines, ignored “work” and watched him more intensely, played with him a bit more, had meaningful conversations with him, studying him, adoring him.
My son has turned 7 now. SEVEN. He will be bigger boy next year. So, I savor each moment of now. Zabir is thoughtful – He clearly uses logic in what he says and how he acts. Striving to be better, every day. My son – can be hyper in so many ways, yet be the most well behave boy if you were to be with him closely.
Just the other day, while I was having my nap, Zabir came on me and start waking me up with smiles and kisses. Enjoyed but curious, thinking that he was up to something. So I asked him with a smile, “Thank you for waking me up sweetheart… and why are you keep smiling? Is there anything you want?” He replied, “No Ummi, I wake you up in smiles and kisses because you always wakes me up with smiles and kisses” Well that goes my heart!
Zabir will randomly tell me that he loves me. Or, he’d get my attention just to say “hi”. He reminded me of Piglet and Pooh…
Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind. “Pooh?” he whispered.
“Nothing,” said Piglet, taking Pooh’s hand. “I just wanted to be sure of you.”
Oh, these days are going by fast, and my baby will one day be grown. But, the memories of yesterday will always be cherished.
