*instead of sweeping the kitchen floor, i read books to the boys.
*instead of putting the clean clothes away, i am a band member in the band.
*instead of just putting a movie on & walking away, i stay & watch it too. (with popcorn, of course!!)
*instead of putting the dishes away, i play a board game.
*instead of cleaning the toys up right away, we leave them & i follow them outside for a walk or head to the park.
i have not always been this way. and to be honest, its still hard sometimes to see all that i need to do & not do it.
i am learning that "in the moment" with the boys is most important.
i am realizing that all my "have to's" can really wait until after the boys are in bed.
i need to enjoy today... NOW!!!
i need to remember that i can't get time back from them.
my sweet boys are growing fast & i need to make the best memories with them everyday!
