This week has been tough. Not like I ran a marathon tough, mentally tough. Bryan went hunting for the first time since the girls were born and I was on my own. Not a big deal to most, but I was really worried about it. It went really well. Not to say that I didn't lose my cool a few times, because I did. But we all survived and we're better for it. My boys were insanely helpful and I couldn't have done it without them. They stepped up and I can start to see the little men they are becoming, makes this mama so proud. I also bribed them and I don't regret that one bit.
School starts next Tuesday and we have to adjust to a new schedule. Frankly, I really like this summer thing and I don't want to. =( I also don't like change AT ALL.
We have our house listed for sale also... Do you know what that feels like to know that someone could call you in an hour and your house would need to be show ready. Oh my!! I've got two little tornadoes, it's no use cleaning anything up until they're down for a nap. I am reminded of something my dad says a lot: "Don't sweat the small stuff. It's all small stuff." And he's right all the things that are weighing on my heart this week... Small stuff. I am reminded to go back to the core of what is important to me. Things that bring my heart such great happiness. Push the rest of it out the door, we don't have room for it here. I've got room morning walks with all my babies, tea parties and making awesome stuff for my kiddos.
I get so busy adding things to my to do list, I forget what's really important.
I'm loving this new stage of playing pretend. Pouring tea and pretend eating, so fun! These two are starting to play together and make each other giggle.
