So I am well aware that almost every parenting book out there says, ” Your children do better when on a schedule.” I do my best to keep one but this morning…. lets just say I got side tracked with a good idea. That good idea had nothing to do with the house that needed to be picked up and the children that needed to taught. So insert – off schedule.
We salvaged the day by a good ol bribe and some faith that everything would get done and it did.
Tomorrow the schedule will be kept. Lesson learned….here is just a little bit of what has been going on over here the last couple days.
Yesterday I baked cookies to honor a pretty important young women, Maura. You can read her story on Kelle Hamptons blog and why yesterday was so important to so many people. It was cold so I could not make it out to pay it forward in a proper way but I decided that my kids deserved a little extra love and kindness. I made cookies with them and for them and I did that in honor of Maura. If you have a moment search the hashtag #HonoringMaura on instagram and see all the other people who did that same. The ripple effect is pretty amazing! Feel free to participate. It doesn’t need to stop! Her family I am sure would love to see people continue on in the act of kindness for such a special person.
I love Thursdays for many reasons but they really are my favorite.
