Hey there. Today is rediscovering post 3. Glad you're here. Honestly, though, I hardly ever get comments so if you are here.....please say hello :) It would make my day.
One of the hardest things for me, but I am working quite hard at, is to take time for the little things. You know, like helping your little girl paint her nails because it makes her happy.
Taking time for the little things is hard to do when you've got 4 kids & a hectic routine that lasts for the better part of each & every day. That's when you have to squeeze in those bonding moments. I'm learning to squeeze (& have the energy for it.....which is a whole other post topic....). My best memories as a child were ones where my mom took time with us to do the little things - like making bowls & fake food out of the hunk of clay she would bring home every so often....or going to see the Pittsburgh Philharmonic play the 1812 Overture on the 4th of July while we sat on some grass with hundreds of others. I thought my life was somewhat magical because of those moments. Thank you Mamacita.
What are you doing to take time out of your crazy life for those you love??
