Enjoying the small things

Yesterday I raced home from work so I would have time to hit the grocery store before picking up Jamie.
I raced through the store.
I raced to daycare so he wouldn't be the last one there.
We raced home.
I hurried to carry all the groceries upstairs so I could get the dog out ASAP.
By the time we got outside I was exhausted from all the running around.
I was exhausted from the day.
All I wanted to do was go back inside and breath.
Take a time out before the madness of our evening routine began.
Just as the thought of putting my feet up put my mind at ease, I saw a little 25 pound toddler race by, headed right for the swing.
I sighed.
I didn't want to swing.
I wondered if I could bribe him back inside without a tantrum.
And then I realized how in the blink of an eye he's not going to want to play with his mama.
I should slow down.
Enjoy these little moments.
So we swang.
We laughed. 
I soaked it all in.
I felt all the stress of the day melt away.
I was reminded that sometimes, you need to just stop and smell the roses.

What a good reminder! I also get wrapped up in our daily routine and sometimes forget to just BE and enjoy being a mom. :)
