Sometimes I'm totally missing the whole point of this toddler activity of the week thing: to slow down and spend quality time with the girls so we make memories.
Last week, (with a fair bit of accountability from a friend) I did just that. I just spent close to 30 minutes (or more than some days) solely focused on the girls (and Sedryn too!).
We cuddled watching a movie. We snuggled together in my bed and read books that I'm totally sick of reading for almost an hour. We found a toad while watering the garden and buried a bowl of water for it to drink from. I was chased by lawn mowers and screaming girls. We hid under a sheet tent from the clothesline and played "Going on a bear hunt" and "Peek a boo." I built towers taller than me and let them fall on the girls.
We just played.
And it was beautiful.
