There are moments which take your breath away

The boy and I decided to have a disco tonight.
We went into the family room (aka back room/ office/ toy dump) and put Spotify on the computer.
We found a few songs we liked. And I put on D: Ream's 'Things Can Only Get Better' and raved while he swung about my legs grinning like an eejit.
And then he asked me to find an Irish tune called 'Toss the Feathers' and we mock Irish danced our way through it, til we were both breathless with laughter and my pelvic floor was tested to the max.
And when that was done I found the song I used to sing to him when he was a baby and told him how I used to rock him to sleep on his rocking chair while singing it.
We played it. I sang it and he cuddled in and I thought yes, this is what being a mum is about. And there will always be room for him on my knee, even when he is man big and has hairy toes.
The song? A Case of You - as sung by Brian Kennedy with the immortal lines...

I remember that time that you told me,
you said love is touching souls
Surely you touched mine
Cause part of you pours out of me
In these lines from time to time

Oh, that's beautiful. I wish we could hear you sing it. Can't you record it for us? Pretty please?

I've read this on two different occasions now and both times it's made me cry!
