I look at him while he is sitting in his crib. He just woke up and is looking back at me. The sleep still in his eyes but fully awake. His mind ready to absorb a new day. In his eyes I see why all of it is worth it. I try to carve this image in my mind so I can go back to it many years later. But I know I won’t remember it. It is this moment that can be enjoyed. It doesn’t last longer than the few seconds of this moment. That’s it. 
I remember the moments I told myself to remember. This feeling, this image, this face, these toes, this sound. I never do.
