Mommy ‘n me Tuesdays have become mainstay in our chaotic lives.
Early mornings, nights and weekends have always been for Samarah, and now Tuesday, every single Tuesday, is also for her.
I’ve been digging deep to realize my true priorities in life these past several months, and I am certain that having her at the center of the day-to-day is making me a much better person.
It’s making me the kind of person who says,
Slowin’ down really ain’t so bad.
A couple months ago, I went to my first MOPS group. Prior to that day, we always had our nanny come Monday through Friday, for about 30 hours a week.
What I quickly realized was that I was always only halfway present with whatever it is I was doing, be that work or my time with Samarah.
I don’t want to be that person. I want to be as fully present as possible with work, but more importantly with Samarah.
I made the decision to keep Tuesdays for she and I.
We go to MOPS in the mornings, and then usually do some kind of activity in the afternoons (a walk, shopping, errands,
me staring at her).
She is still too little to have a fun-filled day with her mommy (making a mess in the kitchen or painting dirt on her kneecaps from park playing).
She is also still too little to understand just how much Tuesdays mean to me.
I am insanely busy with work, launching a product line and training for a half marathon, but I never, ever want to be the mother who is MIA solely to fulfill the dreams I created in my former life.
My dreams are moving forward at a rapid pace, and I am so thankful for that. But the world gets a ton of my time daily, and now?
Tuesdays are not for the fast lane. They are for her….just mommy ‘n me.
Love your guts,
