My to do list is filled with tasks, there’s dishes in the sink, and the kids were craving some mommy time on that Saturday morning. I felt slightly torn between doing “productive” things on my list or taking them somewhere special to play.
I decided the things on my list could wait, a decision that isn’t always easy but always feels right. I made a superfood shake and drank some coffee and the kids and I were out the door to find adventures together.
We laughed, we played, we had quality time together. It was worth the pile of dishes I came home to (so not like me to leave the house without cleaning first). It was meaningful and the kids loved it.
