One More

“I’m not tired!” she whined, “I want a pop!” as she wriggled in his arms.

They hear it every time they go out, it’s ‘one more’. Though they’d tried hard not to indulge in anything that would encourage the erratic, yet completely normal toddler behavior, it was irritating. Seemingly no end, or transition, from any activity.

With his frustration getting borderline angry, through gritted teeth he growled, “We’re going home!”

A sniffle, then a tear appeared. The toddlers’ lip stuck out, heartbroken.

“Maybe just one more for us each,” mother said, “Though the days are long, the years are fleeting.”

    1. Thank you kindly 🙂 My children are nearly/teens and I’ve certainly cherished my time with them. I’m so glad that even through the tough days, I focused on them. We are only given children a short time to nurture and guide — then they will be off having lives of their own. It’s a wonderfully awesome responsibility I never knew I was meant for until I became a mother ❤ Thank you for stopping by to read 🙂

  1. Such a familiar feeling. You put your foot down with the best intention, and then your heart breaks, and then it’s the ‘Okay, but just this time’. Great tale. 🙂

    1. Sometimes the days or situations drag, but I look back and these past few years are melting together. I’m holding my boys closely as we only have a few more years together before they are out living their own lives. Cherishing the moments ❤ Thank you so much for stopping by! 🙂
