And the Work Week Begins...

Mondays are always really hard for me, especially during warm weather when all I can think about are the fun things I could be doing RIGHT now with my kids. It might sound silly, but gardening followed by a good drenching of water was always fun. A good kid friendly museum was always a crowd pleaser too, but could get pricey. I think I loved taking them on excursions as much as they loved going. I miss them already today.

This last weekend was a scorcher and a pretty jam packed few days. We conquered T-ball, a wedding, hosted a dinner and performed some much needed carpet cleaning. I was really excited we got so much done, but then I realized at what expense. My poor baby girl, who is seriously the BEST baby ever, got hardly any of my time. The other two kids are lively and let me know if and when they want something. My little peanut just hangs out and gets what she gets because she doesn't cause a fuss.

This week (and hopefully every day thereafter) I'm going to make it a point to spend more time with my kids. Being with them is more important and essential than a clean house or an organized pantry. I can't spend as much time with my kids as I'd like, so I need to spend the time I can with them now. Like I've been told by moms everywhere, "One day you'll wake up and they will have grown up." Go love your kids!
