The weather has been so cold and so snowy. We both have cabin fever so one day when the weather was a little bit warmer, we decided to go outside and to dance in the road (not a busy road and we watched for cars) in the snow with our boots on. It was so good for both of our souls to be able to go outside, have some sunshine, and to just be careless for a minute. We played, danced, and giggled.
Sometimes, okay all the time, I take life far too seriously. I get all worked up about the messes, dirty dishes, emails that need answered, piles of laundry that need washed and folded that I forget that non of that matters. I forget that as a mom I don’t need to have it all together. All I need to do is love my little boy and husband. That’s really it! I want King to remember having a mom that plays with him, lets him be a little boy and make messes, explore (even when it means butt paste everywhere). I don’t want him to remember his childhood as having a mom who is always bother at him for making a mess, mad that he is exploring and learning. It is going to take me some time, if not forever, to be able to let those things go and to embrace the messes and exploring, but that is okay. I am trying every day to be a better mom, a better wife, and a better me, and that, that is all that matters in the long run.
Now, I just need to take my own advice ha.
