toes in my face

Hello, motherhood. Living and loving this moment right here is the only thing that matters. One day you’ll stop climbing me, wriggling your feet, squeezing limbs, and tugging at my shirt. I can feel my future heart shatter so I can keep this moment. I capture this moment so I can remember your toes in my face. I capture this moment to remember my wrinkles. I capture this moment to look back with tears and laughter. I capture this moment for now and for our future selves. I capture this moment to remember, collect, and hold on.
