My kids are great teachers. They teach me how to slow down. They show me what really matters. They help me get back to the basics and focus on the Finer Things.
Children are all about simplicity. Feed me. Clothe me. Love me. Feed me. They like to be fed, too.
I had a couple of choices when my little scavengers bellied up to the apple crisp bar yesterday.
- Scold them and move them and get them busy on something else so that i could get something done.
- Join them!
I joined them. 🙂 There were plenty of apples to go around, our morning snack was taken care of, and we had lots of fun! Oh, and the apple crisp turned out perfectly yummy, too! And for those with a keen eye, that would be a sports bra around my baby’s neck. She had started folding laundry for me in the other room. Such good helpers I have!
