Dare I say I'm seeing some positive results? This morning I woke feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the day. We made it through our usual busy morning routine with minimal problems and I even sat down to do a puzzle with my little guy when my mind was trying to convince me otherwise. I pushed away those nagging, "This will make you late!" thoughts and happily pieced together the puzzle with him. Were we a few minutes late getting out of the door? Yes! Was it worth it? Definitely.
It's those moments that I often miss because I am too concerned about my to-do list, being late, or distracted. There are even times I say no because I just don't want to sit down and do it. Does that make me an awful mother? No. It does, however, make me want to be more of a "yes" mom than a "no" mom. I think those one-on-one moments mean more to my sweet little kiddos than I realize. I don't want them to look back on their childhood and think, "Geez, my mom never sat down and did that with me. She was always too busy."
Great lesson today. I love this project and hope you're finding some value in yours as well!
