I’ve been meaning to stop and write a little something, but then wonder where to start. We’re already into the third week of October, and I still think its September. I ask myself over and over how I can manage time better. It feels like every moment of my days is taken up by something. I’m thinking of raking with Jameson when he wakes from his nap, how I should deep clean the bathroom before we have guests this weekend, that I still need to call and make appointments for flu shots and our quilt… I should wash our bedroom quilt.
I was going through my baby book the other night. My! Lucia really does look like me! If I had a scanner here at home I’d show you! The biggest difference… is that I wasn’t as dainty (aka: I was a chunk). After looking through the old photos I started thinking how I’m doing around here as a mom. In the midst of all my crazy thoughts and half finished house work.. Am I focusing on the important things? Am I praising, teaching, and loving Jameson and Lucia in the way they need to be? I don’t think I’m failing.. but I could do better. We always could, right? One of the things thats always been important to me is that my children would remember me as being fun. I want them to have vivid memories of laughing and playing with me. So, once again I stop in the middle of everything and repeat to myself. “PLAY”. Today we’ll play. Here are a couple snap shots from playing this past weekend.
