Today turned out beautifully. I woke up with the plan to simply do some organizing. The universe heard my plea and granted me a visit from mom who helped me a bit. Even though all I wanted to was sleep, I allowed my daughter to convince me to go out to play in the snow—although she didn’t have to convince me much because if there’s snow involved, I’m in.
As much as I’m a planner, I leave room for spontaneity. It is really in these moments I tend to have the most fun. We were the only ones at the playground, and moved to the park. It was quiet and beautiful with fluffy snow.
We were exhausted by the end of the time there. Sometimes, that’s all it takes; an exhausted parent who takes the kids out on a snowy day to make it, the perfect day.
What are you up to?
