So the other night I noticed my three year old had lost her blanket while she was sleeping and I covered her back up. As I was tucking it back in all snug around her I realized that that, for whatever reason, is my quintessential mom moment. There’s just something about covering a sleeping loved one so they don’t get cold that feels very mothering. I mean this morning I was holding a puke bucket while said three year old vomited her guts out, which is probably way mom mom-ish, but all I could think about was focusing on anything else so I didn’t’ puke, too, lol.
So what about you? What’s the one thing that you think of as being the most quintessential act of motherhood?
