hunting for the moon rock
When our son was around two we had a really hard time getting him to sleep. Feeling desperate, we didn’t know what else to do but drive around to calm him down so he could fall asleep.
After a few nights, our son started to catch on that getting in the car meant going to sleep and that was no longer fun. We had to pivot and started a game of hunting for the “moon rock” (what our son called the moon at the time).
Night after night we would search for it in the sky, driving around looking and laughing at the shape. Shortly after we found it, we would notice it was silent in the backseat as he had finally drifted off to sleep.
The hunt for the moon rock phase only lasted about a month and in a blink of an eye it was over, like most toddler phases. What started out as a stressful time turned into a special memory for us as parents.
Moon Rock is affectionately named after our little astronaut. It is about the memories. It is about the little experiences we capture with our kids and our loved ones that we want to hold onto forever.
