I was inspired and touched after reading this and thought I would share.
I hope if someone was looking into my house that they would say, "that mommy lives in the moment"
because tonight this mommy let Grayson eat in his playroom...actually it was my dinner and Grayson decided he wanted it
and after he finished my bowl he wanted more so I made us both fresh bowls and we sat at his table and had dinner and of course he made a huge mess...what toddler doesn't
well washing hands turned into playing with the water for a good 30 minutes. But hearing him laugh and talk about the water and saying "hot" and "cold" was priceless. Not to mention he got into everything that he possibly could around and near the sink. Busy boy!
So it might have been a later bedtime tonight, another mess to clean up, and changing PJ's again, but I would not trade it for the world. I needed this moment today with Grayson just to laugh and be in the moment of life with Grayson
I challenge you to be in the moment today or all this week with your kids too. See you soon!
