-today while elbow deep in cleaning appliances she came over and handed me a book. She reminded me of my priorities. I pulled my gloves off and plopped us on the couch to read her chosen book. Humidifier cleaning can wait, she at this age will not.
Not only did we finish the book but today was her first picnic! I decided it was too nice outside to not enjoy lunch out on the deck. Her little carpet was already out there I just threw down one of her sheets for us (have to be a little clean somewhere).
Bonus to not have to clean her highchair tray or a bib! After all does it matter to her things aren't in it's perfect place, cleaned, lined up and labeled? Or will she remember the times she handed me a book and we read together or the times we had picnics. Something I now remind myself- priorities. If I forget I will gladly let her remind me.
