Happy Wednesday, friends! It’s been a quiet week for us so far. This mama caught the flu, and in between the fevers + sore throat I’ve been doing a bang-up job at keeping things lazy as can be. I’m pretty good at being lazy when need be, if I’m being honest 😉 . But the quietness never lasts for long with my bubbly crew. These 4 kids keep things wild and fresh. They were the cutest maniacs, driving their strollers around our local, outdoor mall. I’m glad the baby was in my bassinet and not their’s! They were a riot, loving every second of it. Breathing it all in. But I started to have a hard time balancing my need to control the situation versus letting them just. be. kids. They’d get a bit too far for comfort or would bump into oncoming shoppers and I’d raise my mean mama voice to grip control. Me feeling like they were driving me crazy might be more of a reflection of me than it is of them. They’re all 5 and under and their ability for self-control is fairly low on the scale, especially when measured against my own. And so I’m working on that today. Controlling less, guiding more.
