Gumboot Girl said No, No, No to house cleaning today and insisted we paint instead. Well, what was I to do? How could I say no? It's not like the alternative was going to be any more fun although I will admit that for a
So here is what I did today instead! Add in Gumboot Girl's encouraging words that I was a "very clever, Mummy!" And look what can be achieved ...
Now if I were three years old. That would be considered gifted my friends!
I will say that, with my girls growing so damn quickly, I have found myself enjoying these little moments more and more. I'm trying to give more of myself to these moments because all too soon they will be gone. Distant memories. But memories I hope my girls will look back on fondly.
Truth be told, this week as my headache starts to finally ease, I'm trying to make up for a week or more of feeling agitated and impatient with my girls. My doctor, bless him, was saying how headaches are underestimated for the impact they have on a person when they are unrelenting as mine has been and I have to agree.
The constant dull ache I have had for over two weeks now, while not incredibly painful, has slowly drained my energy with its permanency. The fact that there have been times today when it has not been so prominent is filling me with a hopefulness that soon it will be gone for good!
I can only hope. But for today I will try and remember to give more time to my girls because for them, it really doesn't matter if our house is sparkling clean as long as when I am with them, I am there, giving them my full attention, no distractions.
What have you been up to today? Have you stopped to smell the roses?
