Time changes can be glorious happenings. They can also be a parent of littles worst nightmare. In the past, time changes have been more of the latter kind.
Today, I woke up to my own internal alarm clock and not that of my children alternating calls for mommy and daddy.
Although this quiet was short-lived, it was kind of nice. It was followed by the aforementioned kid-calls for parents, but I was ready for it.
I walked in my son’s room and began the morning preliminary activities of instructing him to go potty and get dressed. My husband followed shortly behind taking care of our daughter’s diaper changing. And then we all gathered on the floor of her room rather spontaneously and watched our children play. We joined in some, of course, but I was mostly taking it all in.
No rushed agenda to get us out the door.
Brushing teeth could wait just a minute.
No hunger cries from the littles.
No distracting agenda thoughts racing through my mind.
Just wide-eyed enjoying these first few moments of wake time with my children and the man I love.
This post is part of a 31 day movement. You can learn more about it here but the gist of it is that I take 5 minutes to write on a one word prompt that is provided following a theme that I have chosen. My theme is The Mom Life. So every post will center around my life and experiences as a mom and what comes to mind when I think about the prompt given. Hope you enjoy following my writing journey as much as I will love crafting the words.
