Earlier this morning, Lila tapped me on my leg and said “Mama? This is a goooooooood day! I Lub you very much!” And ran back to her magnatiles.
…..but here’s the thing.
Today has been nothing special.
We didn’t go to the zoo and get ice cream.
I didn’t fight Denver traffic to get to Children’s museum before the parking lot filled up, and let her play in the bubble room all morning.
We didn’t go to Disney on ice.
We simply spent time together.
Just the two of us.
It’s been a simple morning. I unloaded the dishwasher while my coffee brewed and she ate pancakes.
She helped me wash the strawberries, one by one.
I folded laundry while she played babies.
We read 2 books together in the rocking chair and then cuddled while listening to a few songs on my phone.
She took a bath while I checked my email and paid a bill.
And it was such a good reminder that kids love and crave simplicity.
Sure, playdates and outings are fun and memorable, but I’ve found the simple, slow mornings at home - are SO beneficial in my motherhood journey.
They want that connection.
They want that routine.
They want that peace and calm.
They want that simplicity.
