this mama's heart

I foolishly hoped that somehow, even in my absence, I would know and understand all of the minutia of my little one's life. But I don't. And when I witness how easily the turtle finds peace in his daddy's arms, how quickly he cuddles into the crook of his shoulder and settles his head under his chin, I am a little jealous. A little jealous of how organically they flow from motion to motion - action to action. How simply they transition from play to quiet to sleep. They instinctively know the other's patterns and in a few short months have learned their own language. It's one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. But it breaks this mama's heart just a little.
