We all have those days where are to do list runs through our mind the minute we wake up. We have to
- Go to the Store
- Do the Laundry
- Clean out the Fridge (Not sure how long that last piece of meatloaf has been there)
- Check emails
- Get work done
- What’s for Dinner
You get the idea. Those lists go on and on.
The darnedest thing is…I am not sure there is a day I wake up when I don’t have a list! Seriously, every day it is something. But one thing that is a constant on the top of my list. My Kids!
My kids are growing up right before my eyes. I have known it is happening for years. But something about the last few weeks …I have seen it first hand.
I have sat back and watched them interact with each other.
I have watched them interact with their friends.
I have watched them interact with the world.
While I am proud at the wonderful, caring, smart, little individuals that they are. A part of my heart aches. It aches for the days when they got excited to cuddle and read a story. Or those days when just they sat on the kitchen floor digging in the cabinets playing with my tupperware.
The thing is, I am not sure what I am going to do with myself as they grow even more. I kinda need them as much as they need me. They are my sunshine and I love them more than they will ever know.
So lately I have made it a point to scratch out a few of those things from my to-do list. They will still be there tomorrow, and I am sure the world won’t fall apart if I don’t find that mystery container in the back of the fridge.
But today.. today being mom is enough.
