|Joy and Grandpa after Thanksgiving|
It made me cry, want to wake up my sleeping children so I could snuggle them, and realize how precious my time is with them.
I also read somewhere this week that a child learns their attachment by the age of 5 and if they spend more time with their peers they may well attach there ~ or not at all.
And then earlier this week another friend told me she's giving her 6 week notice and staying home with her 8 month old, just to enjoy this time.
All of these random thoughts about my children and the time I have with them.
Life is such a balancing act and I'm such a Type A person that it's hard for me to just chill out if there are too many things out of line. But my children will only be home with me for a little while... Cory's already in school half days and I don't see him there. He's growing up and in the craziness I don't often get to spend time just with him (time for dates to begin?).
It's hard to slow down, but if I don't, I miss the wonder. In light of my friend's post I have tried just to take a few minutes more with my children. The laundry will always be there... their childlike wonder will not.
Where is the wonder in your life? Have you made time for it lately?
This is the last 5 Minute Friday of the year. I haven't been as good at participating this year, but I love the prompts for writing. I hope you'll consider joining me more often next year!
