Hold on

He still reaches for my hand. 🤚🏼I love it and maybe I love it so much because he is my last and I am aware of how little time I have left of this kind of affection. He brought me the flowers that are fastened to the back of my pack with a big fat presentation smile. Being a mother of this stage of childhood is fleeting for me and my heart really does have a desire to stop time.

I have been listening to Brene Brown on parenting - she is seriously incredible. She was talking about how kids who have boundaries use these boundaries as bragging rights among their friends. Kind of a cool reminder to stick to the boundaries when it's hard. And on top of all the evaluating and listening to parenting advice I love this quote, "There is no such thing as a perfect parent. So just be a real one." -Sue Atkins

Love the reminders and soaking up the time that I have with my kiddos!
