One of my favorite times with my girls is our after bath time routine. It is a (mostly) every day ritual... Wrapping my girls up in a fluffy towel. Smothering them with baby lotion that smells of lavender. Spraying their hair down with detangler and working through all the little knots and snags. Throwing on a clean set of clothes and kissing their soft cheeks, only to send them off to get all dirty again.
In this little window of time, I am always reminded of what a special gift my children are and what a treasure motherhood truly is! I already savor the chance at getting a whiff of lavender in my older age and being taken back to these very sweet mother/daughter moments just as the scent of honey suckle always brings me back to my childhood days and exploring my big backyard. Such memories! ♥
