Long weekends are never breaks for most moms. More chaos. More mess. More clutter. More cooking. More cleaning. Less time for mom.
Little hands grow. Silence comes. Scissors will stay in the drawer. Hairbrushes in the bathroom. Pillows tidy on the couch. All those shoes will walk out my door on grown up feet.
What am I so uptight about?
Have a great Labor Day weekend! Life is fleeting. Live it well.
“Mama, will you read to me?”
Gotta’ get off this time-sucking machine and go read The Giving Tree. It’s her favorite.
This has inspired my next post! I will link back to you 🙂
Thank you! How interesting and exciting to see where your thoughts took you from here! I am delighted!
They do grow SO fast and then the requests and demands cease. As crazy as some days are, I will miss it, for sure and I realize how very blessed I am to be getting to start all over with Samuel. 😀
Time sucking is right!! I have to time myself otherwise I could lose myself!! Love what you are saying and I agree 100%!
Ha! Ha! Isn’t it true? But it has so many redeeming qualities! Buzz. Took your advice. That’s my timer! Got to go! Have a SUPER week!
Excellent advice HSD! I am always telling myself to lighten up and “not sweat the small stuff.” It’s so easy to get wrapped up in the moment and not focus on the big picture. Thank you for helping us to see this. 🙂
Typing it helps me see it, too!
Hee hee, no doubt!
