Historically, I’m in a panic every weekend to come up with family activities. I like to keep my littles busy or they go crazy. Not to mention that my spouse gets cabin fever.
Today was different though. When the boys came in our room early this morning, we put on a cartoon & cuddled. We made our way downstairs, I made waffles, we played & cleaned house. I made boys lunch, then off to nap we went.
This evening, we painted & carved pumpkins, I made dinner, then made the boys their favorite hot chocolate with whipped cream & sprinkles.
I didn’t feel overwhelmed. I didn’t feel like a cruise director. It was simple. We were just being. It feels like we’ve found our rhythm as a family.
What is better than that?
