#95: Take Time To Savor Your Little Ones
3 days ago
Today I am a mother of a 6 year old. Tomorrow, I will be the mother of a 7 year old. Yes... tomorrow my son, Levi, turns 7 and I feel like my little baby boy is growing up way too fast! For last week's episode of Life Made Simple I shared with you how crazy busy my life has been this summer. And I have to be honest, my son's birthday tomorrow is becoming a real eye opener for me. I know it's a cliché, but life is short. And sometimes when life gets crazy busy it's easy to rush through it all forgetting about the little things in life that make it worth living.

Sing at the top of your lungs in the car, dance in the grocery store, pull a harmless prank. Let them climb into bed with you (sometimes). Don’t round UP on their ages. She says, even if your child turns 7 in two months, keep thinking of him as 6. There’s need to hurry childhood along, right? Fill your home with photos of them. Practice living simply so your mind is clearer, which—in my case—helps me experience more moments as they come. See your children through a camera lens. Capture not just their milestones but the scenes you see every single day. Choose one thing you can accept, rather than tolerate. Letting go can alleviate so much ag
