The Little Things

I'm reclining in a GCI Outdoors camp rocker at 2:19 a.m., a sleeping baby in my lap, the sound and vibrations of a severe thunderstorm as my soundtrack, and a power outage. 
It would be nice to have another plush  rocking chair recliner like the one in which my daughter has fallen asleep while holding the other baby, but there is no more space for a large chair so we use a camp rocker. It folds flat, can hold 400 pounds, and is nice and roomy.
It's times like this that all the sleepless nights and dirty diapers seem to become fleeting memories. I am finding that I actually enjoy rocking babies in a camp chair. There is a nice reclining rocking chair. I just don't like it. I'm short, and it's made for taller people. But still, I don't remember the feelings I had when I rocked my own children,  but there is a weird contentment that comes with just being in the moment-- being in this moment.
