I’ve had a few days alone with my lady bug and I’ve learned something: life with one lady bug is SO DIFFERENT than life with a husband, 2 monkeys, and a lady bug. So different!
So, that inspired tonight’s thoughts…
What I wish I could tell the Me with one child:
Relax, this is easy compared to now
Clean, because you can
Take time to sit and play
Learn something new
Listen to them laugh
Watch them grow
Make dinner while there aren’t 50 different opinions about food
A load of laundry a day keeps the piles away
Make your bed, you feel better
Grocery shopping is SO easy with one child compared to 3, take advantage
Enjoy the moment.
*I’m sure there are plenty more items I could add to this list but it’s pretty inclusive. I love my busy life now, in fact, I miss getting up and pushing kids out the door for school and packing lunches. BUT, these few days have been so relaxing. I haven’t had an insane amount of bickering, or whining, or defiance, or tears, or anything. It’s been mostly quiet and dance parties.
A girl can use quiet and dance parties every now and then.
