One of the best things about Summer is all of the extra time we get to spend with the kids and all of the special moments we get to share. This morning I was awakened, and surprised, by breakfast in bed from Eric. I probably didn’t say ‘thank you’ enough times, but I can’t express how those little things can kick a day off right. As Moms a lot of our identity is tied to making sacrifices. Buying things for our kids before ourselves or sacrificing eating a hot meal for a lukewarm one so everyone can be served become second nature. Let me tell you a little secret, no matter how Supermom a Mom is, she can always use some pampering. And believe it or not with even just a little pampering, her Superwoman powers can skyrocket even higher!
After I enjoyed breakfast Briella came up and tucked herself into bed next to me. “Hey Mom look how little my pinkie is!” she exclaimed as she held her tiny hand up next to mine. How often do we take time for those moments? To sit and look at just how small their fingers and toes are and just how quickly they grow into ‘big people’ fingers and toes. We know firsthand with Aiden (13) and Briella (4) just how quickly that time does fly. Here’s to setting aside just a few minutes tomorrow to really soak in these moments before they pass.
