What Was I Stressing About?

oh right – everything!

It’s weird how one little thing can make everything seem stressful – but it does. My younger 2 take afternoon naps usually around the same time, while my older 2 play outside. We have worked into a nice summer schedule :) Only today my girls didn’t go outside right away – just having fun inside – and so Owen was woken up. They are never quiet, and why should they be, they are kids! It just sent me today – Owen whining in his crib, and them invading my quiet time.

I got them plastered in sunscreen – and sent them out. Ah a little better.
I left Owen in his bed – he wasn’t screaming just whining – he went back to sleep. Lots better.
A phone call from Joe – “Don’t stress out. Take a breather.” I’m okay :)

Sometimes I just need a reminder. “Take some time for yourself – you are important too!”

So don’t forget to take some time for yourself today – okay?

Blessings -
Amy
