Sometimes, you have to slow down.
If you haven’t noticed, I do about 40,000 different things. I have a full time job, I blog, a lot. I have two kids that need to go to school, karate, and they are starting to have social activities as well. I lead a host team at church on Saturday nights. I try to go to the gym at least 3 times a week with 5 being even better. I cross stitch. I knit. I spend way too much time on hair and make-up.
But sometimes you have to stop the go – go – go. And the get things accomplished!
Sometimes you have to just hang with your kids.
So last night, Dylan and I just hung out. I read a magazine while he snuggled and told me every single move he made on every single iPad game! And I listed. And I commented. And I ate digital ice cream and donuts (since I can’t have the real thing). I made a monster band and broke some glass towers.
And all that time that I wasn’t getting anything done. All that time where there were e-mails to be answered, blog posts to write, videos to film, dishes to wash, nails to paint, books to read, and projects to work on. All that time I spend just hanging out with my son was worth it.
Every obnoxious second.
Because this morning he came and hung out with me while I dried my hair and put on my makeup. He told me about things that happened at school instead of just saying he doesn’t remember, like he does when I ask every day. He picked out my earrings.
My room isn’t clean anymore. There are about a dozen stuffed animals in the floor and my jewelry box has been completely unorganized. But the morning was beautiful.
