Slowing Down

Life gets busy with little ones. You don’t even have to have kids to know that parenting is hectic. And it can be one of the biggest complaints of a parent because let’s face it, we get worn out.
There is SO much going on in life and the pace is quick. Dishes to wash, laundry to fold, floors to sweep, meals to cook, toilets to bleach, toys to pick up, diapers to be changed, little birdie mouths to be fed, papers to grade, lessons to be planned, emails to be sent, errands to be ran, bills to be paid, exercise routines to actually be completed. I could run 100mph and still not get it all done…there aren’t enough hours in the day.

However, there is also the other part of parenting. The small moments when you take a minute to slow down and just enjoy your babies. Like when I let Grady sleep in my rocking arms. I sit down putting everything else on hold and I just smell him. (I LOVE the way babies smell♥)

Or when I get down on the floor with Joshua and play trucks with him and take selfies, because he loves getting his picture taken.

And there are Saturdays when I don’t get a single chore done or any errands ran and I don’t care because I’m spending precious time with my babies. And when life slows down for a moment, it’s the best.
