To all you young moms out there--be sure and take the time to rock your babies.
It may not be politically correct now with all the books on crying it out...and I am not saying don't ever let your baby fuss before bed (although remember that there might be another reason besides them trying to manipulate you).
But don't lose your chance to rock them every now and then.
To smell their hair below your chin, to feel their warmth on your torso.
To lull them to sleep as you rock forward and back,
sweet lullabyes on your lips, sweet coos on their tongues.
A day will come when they will squirm, they won't want you so close.
Be sure and take the time to rock your babies.
It's a sweet memory that every mama should treasure.
