School is over and the days are long.
Whether you are a mom at home with energetic toddlers, kids, and teenagers or a mom juggling a work schedule while planning childcare and activities, summer time can be taxing.
Even though homework stops and racing after school activities slow, summers are just HOT!
Here is my tribute to summer time this year from a mom who longs that the eldest of her trio of boys were here to share it with.
Live this summer with your kids like it is the last.
Slow down. Make memories and messes.
Gaze at the clouds.
Help someone else’s load be lighter.
Let’s not be uptight.
Can we laugh? I mean really laugh hard. Fake it if you need to. But also give yourself freedom to cry.
After all moms, what will they remember?
They will remember your teeth gleaming with a smile on your unmade-up face.
They will remember if you were happy. So…let’s be happy!
This is the only summer from fourth to fifth grade, or two years to three years, or maybe one last high school summer.
Make memories in the messy moments.
This is my aspiration and tribute to the summer of 2014
Will you join me?
Can you share some ideas with me?
