I always have to remind myself that it's so important to take a simple 5 minutes to sit and play... today has been an extremely busy day with work and cleaning my messy house and catching up on MOUNDS of laundry. I was in the middle of hanging something outside to dry when my baby girl caught my hand and said "come play with me." To be honest, it was very hard to say yes... there is just so much to be done. I know how important these times will be for her (and me too) because one day she will stop asking... so I will give her 5+ minutes when she asks me and when my boys ask me. I realized, too, that each and everyday my three ask me about my prompt... they ask me what my photo is... they watch me take a photo, edit a photo, upload a photo, and all the while they are so patient with me while I do it... EVERYDAY they do that for me... Oh how I wish an adults life could slow down to child's speed. They give me the time daily to finish what I am doing... "just a second" is a very common phrase they hear from me and they never complain... they always give me that time so I better be sure to give them the time they ask for! (While I was outside playing with my daughter, my hubby was playing a board game with my boys... I am so grateful that my sweet husband will also give that time when our kids ask).
