"What day is it?"

"It's today," squeaked Piglet.
"My favorite day," said Pooh. 

A.A. Milne


Life has been busy lately.
My brain never seems to wind down...
constantly scrolling through my various to-do lists.
I haven't been living in the moment at all.
For that, I am sorry.

Of course we all endure periods of go, go, go.
But nothing is more important than raising that
wild
sweet
funny
infuriating
crazy
kiddo of mine.
To make sure he has my undivided love and attention.
There will be a lot more of me to share in about six weeks,
but the meantime should not be discarded.

I have not been absent.
But if I am honest,
I have not been present, either.

Here's to
pausing,
breathing,
enjoying.

Every Lego battle.
Every drawing and doodle.

Before I know it,
he will be growing a 'stache.


How very lucky I am.

  2. Those pics are great! I am guilty of being around but not present too, and I am also always filtering my to-do lists through my head. I am hoping once school is over I will feel less stretched. Here's to trying to be more present!

  3. What a sweet, sweet post. Once you realise you've not been 'present' then it gets much easier to rectify. Enjoy the paper mustaches and the Lego!
