We just got home from a trip to see my parents and sister in Pittsburgh so of course like all trips, you come home and make a mess with laundry, bags that need unpacked, grocery shopping that needs to get done. I think today Brady (who is now napping on the couch and Lucy in her crib) asked me to push him on the swings or play Lincoln Logs with him about 30 times already and it's only 12:15pm and my answer every time "Brady, not right now, I have to insert some chore, I'll play in a few minutes." Now that he's asleep, I was looking for a gift on etsy and I saw a quote on a picture frame and the guilt set in a bit.

I hope my children look back on today and see a mother who has time to play.

I think I need this reminder every day because really, playing and making memories, that's what matters. They aren't going to be little forever.

Brady bear, the rest of the day belongs to you my boy. No chores, no computer. Just you. Well and Lulu too. Love you kiddo.
