My youngest and I were sitting on the couch having her read me one of her books and she looks up at me and asks, "Mommy why aren't you playful anymore?". That one stopped me in my tracks. I looked into her big, beautiful brown eyes and said, "honey, I just don't know".
Her comment really resonated with me and made me think. Why am I no fun anymore? Has my job gotten to me? Has life stress taken away the once "fun" mom from my children? Am I not living in the moment anymore?
My youngest will only be 8 for a little longer. I need to cherish every moment I get with her. Not to mention my other daughters. Every day they grown up just a little bit more, before you know it they are grown.
My baby girl gave me some great insight. I need to cherish every moment I have with these beautiful daughters of mine. We are only given so much time until they grow up.
