So last night I had one of those awesome parenting moments where it validates that you are doing something right!
So we are all sitting around the living room watching a program on tv. We being Myself my 9 yr old son, 11 yr old daughter, and my fiancée. We had just finished up dinner when this happened:
7 yr old daughter: Mommy should we do the dinner dishes?
Me: Oh I’ll get them in a bit.
7 yr old: But should us kids get them done for you?
Me: (Stunned that my 7 yr old WANTS to do the dishes) Ummm…yep! Who is gonna help?
I look from child to child as my 7 yr old scurries off to the kitchen to start her task, happy to those dirty dinner dishes.
Yep, I must be doing something right!
Okay after 5-6 long months of writers block it has miraculously left me. Trust me I am more than grateful to be able to pounce on my works once again however I forgot the one down fall to writers brain…it never shuts up!
Last night a lay awake as short stories flooded my brain and everything was over analyzed and dissected. I woke up this morning late and groggy. However my mind is fully on the newest book I started almost a year ago.
Now if I could get my writers brain to focus a bit more precisely I might get some actual writing done today!
So today I woke to kiss my kids goodbye and send them off to school. Half awake I kiss little foreheads and squeeze small shoulders before meandering off to bed again.
I never realize how much raising 7…yes 7 kids, take out of me till that first day of no little ones at home. I find myself sleeping in rather late then shuffling around the house in jammies. Nothing on my to do’s this day but recoup.
Good morning! It’s me, the first day of the week! And how are you this fine me? Oh…I see. I’m sorry to hear that. But did you at least have a good Saturday and Sunday? Great! Yeah, those guys are the best. We’re kind of a little crew, me and them. Yup, Saturday, Sunday, Monday. The big 3!
This is Fantastic! :)
