Grant has been a little oh how do you say...uh...difficult today. The poor kid just would NOT take a nap. He wanted to be held, cuddled, kissed etc. etc. I have yw stuff, errands, people to meet etc. and today just wasn't a good day for him to be high maintance. As I sat here with him FINALLY asleep on my shoulder I read a comment from President Hinckley that helped me to understand the importance of my time with him and my calling as a mother. Leave it to Pres. Hinckley to give such a great reminder!
"You have nothing in this world more precious than your children. When you grow old, when your hair turns white and your body grows weary, when you are prone to sit in a rocker and meditate on the things of your life, nothing will be so important as the question of how your children have turned out ... Do not trade your birthright as a mother for some bauble of passing value ... The baby you hold in your arms will grow quickly as the sunrise and the sunset of the rushing days." President Gordon B. Hinckley
and with that being said guess who is awake???
