This past week, I followed in some of my fellow bloggers footsteps, by spending more quality, one-on-one time with my daughter. It felt rewarding and fulfilling to “just be.” From taking long walks in the morning and evening, to coloring and making special treats for the week, it really was so nice just to give my daughter all of my attention and energy. The laundry and dishes piled up and the dog hair piles grew on the floor, but you know what, who cares, because I had a blast with her.
I recently read somewhere that moms “rush through each moment.” We do this in an effort to stay sane and keep whatever amount of energy we have left going, but at what cost? I often rush through each moment too, rushing through bath, rushing to get her dressed, fed, rushing to get her out the door for doctor appointments, and to be quite honest, it has to be super annoying and frustrating for her, as it is for me.
