Mom's love in the morning

I got my Valentine's Day present at 5:15 this morning. Ususally, when Daniel gets up at this Godforsaken hour, it's with a list of "I need," or "I want." This morning, though, he crawled in between mom and dad, snuggled up to us both, and proceeded to cuddle and talk to us until we were ready to get up. I know this time won't last - the time when he wants to spend time with us instead of us chasing him. And in the crazy, busy days we let slip by, I'm glad to stop and recognize how precious and important those few minutes are. So Happy Valentine's Day to all you moms, here's hoping your kids come to you today.
