I hope we're all having a wonderful week. I'm pretty happy because we're one day closer to Friday which means we're one day closer to the weekend and who doesn't love the weekend?
I realized the other day that I've dropped all early morning obligations (gymnastics, dance, etc.) in favor of just resting. Don't we all need a rest every now and then? My kids are so young and I think they can survive a few weeks of not running around or dealing with a stressed-out-because-I-can't-find-the-ballet-slipper-mommy. I'm sure after the summer months I'll be ready to dive back into a gajillion lessons for each kid and return to my chauffeuring ways. But right now...I'm enjoying the stillness. The restful mornings of lounging around in our pj's while the kids play, I slowly clean up the house and get ready for the day and we head out at our own leisurely pace. It seems like a gift, a time to savor. Next fall my daughter will start kindergarten and after that she'll be in 1st grade and my other daughter will be in kindergarten...and the year after that my daughters will be in grade school and my son will be in kindergarten. My mornings will be jam packed with where-the-heck-is-your-backpack-and-other-sock-mornings. So, right now I'm savoring the quiet. The slow pace. The chance to sleep in until 8 a.m. and then just hang out together as a family. My little, perfect family. I'm going to miss this, I'm sure. In fact, I'm positive.
So, my question for you this week is:
What do you to in your slow time?
Here's the party! Enjoy!
