27 Days to a Happy Mom - Day 15
Sometimes I get all caught up in the "I don't get to do what I want to do" mommy martyrdom. I'll talk back to myself now. So quit and make time for some of what you want to do. And the rest of the time, let yourself enjoy the time with your children. At the most vital level, children really don't need a whole lot. They need a standard amount of care-taking, and they want fluff and stuff. But of you, as their mother, they just want you. Your time. Your attention. Your love. Your affirmations that they are something really special.
Just for today... turn off this computer and really be there with your kids. It's not as hard as you think, doesn't take that much time, and it's kinda nice!
