Slow Down

The past week or so I feel like all I've done is run around like a headless chicken. There's always somewhere to go, something to clean, something pulling me or dragging me in one direction or another. I need a vacation!

Bean has a cold, poor thing. Therefor she's been easily upset and overly dramatic. Poor momma! I was just thinking about it and ways to handle this period in time. That's when I realized I've been too busy. I know as a stay at home mom I am literally Go Go Go! But I've got to be better at remembering to stop, sit down, and spend time with my kid. They grow up too fast, and I don't want to look back and think "what happened? where did that time go?". I want to remember these special moments. I wonder if me being to busy to sit down and color with Bean is one of the reasons her emotions have been above average. I think it is.

This morning I'm going to spend all morning just hanging out with my too-fast-growing little bean. We both need it. The dishes and laundry will be there for the afternoon.

Yes, I need to continue to remind myself to slow down.
