We live in an era of instant sharing. Instantly, I can see that my friend has made a wonderful, educational activity for her child, while I wipe peanut butter off my child’s bed and rush him off to nap. I’m constantly re-prioritizing.
I think I want to do the things my friends are posting and getting accolades for. It certainly isn’t fun just doing the daily routine and not getting any reward for it. I want to be a good mom like they are.
A friend shared this blog post, and it is something I need to hear… often.
While some moms do it all, and do it well, I need to just focus on having silly time with my boys. No one will see it. It won’t be Pinterest-worthy, but I won’t regret it.
May God bless my time, and my ability to use it wisely. Play first. Work later.
