3 Times this week...
I have heard this saying "enjoy it while it last, soon your babies will be your age". I have been taking my little children for granted. I have been crazy, busy with laundry, cleaning, crafting, and bills. I realize that I spend way too much time worrying about all of the things that only matter right this second. I love to have a clean house, but should that take precedence over taking a minute to play pretend kitchen? I spent an hour making dinner last night and then more time cleaning it up. Could that hour have been spent coloring with the girls?
Ryan and I were talking about little ones ending up in our bed. I have been telling Aniston to go back to her bed when she wakes up in the night, because a queen sized bed is just too small for a family of 4. Ryan told me not to do that, because soon, she won't want to come and cuddle with us at all.
What the heck have I been doing!! I am wasting all of this time, we could be playing dress-up and coloring and laughing and being completely silly. So I am going to be better. I am going to be a better mom! I want to play more and I want to work less! I want to color more and wash dishes less!! Aniston was Emersons age just yesterday! So sad=(
