I love the days when we can do whatever we want. We can make a city on the dining room table, watch a movie in the middle of the day, or check out three parks. But even on these special days, we can't do everything.
Earlier this week I saw a post called "I'm a mom who doesn't. You don't have to, either." The author talks about what things she doesn't do as a parent and how not doing those things opens up time and energy for the things she wants do. The important things in her life. What a great reminder as the holiday season begins.
Are you a "mom who doesn't?"
I don't cook fancy dinners.
I don't fold clothes right away.
I don't make all of our own baby food.
I do take tons of photos.
I do love play doh, sand, mud, water, and science experiments despite the mess.
I do love watching our kids grow up together.
