Today was another delicious slow day.
Two in a row. I think I might be on to something here. No rushing, a less cranky mum, no time constraints, no massive 'to-do-list', just a little list with a "we have all day to do these jobs together' attitude.
I really like it.
I'll write more soon about this 'go-slow' lifestyle I'm trialling. ;-)
However, it's nearly bed time. I've had a sick little girl so I must go to sleep soon in case she is restless again tonight.
But first, a little story.
After breakfast this morning I set the kids up with watercolour paints and cereal box cardboard crowns at the kitchen table. I did the dishes and we chatted. They were creating so well together, calmly and happily, so I decided I would check my email in another room for few minutes and leave them to it.
After about 10 minutes, the internet really is a time warp, I returned to the kitchen.
And this is what I found.....
I bet you thought I was going to show you a picture of a huge mess. Hahahahaha.
We have them too. It's a rare painting session when Miss 2 doesn't come to show me the rainbow war-paint on her arms or legs... at the very least!
But not this time.
Master 5 had found a glue stick in the drawer and some beads and sequins from his treasure tin and stuck them on to his delightfully coloured crown. Miss 2 had got some stamps out of the same drawer and had managed to stamp them just on her crown; not the wall or her skin.
I love these kids. They are such a blessing in my life.
And I love going slow.
Next up, master the 'go slow' outside the home..this might be a bit trickier.
Until next time xx
