Storytime at the library and the craft involved food!!! And a V-Day treat from the teacher!
C asked: you were a teacher once, right? Me: Yes. C: Can you teach me about personal space on the chalkboard? Me: Sure, how about the dry erase board? C: okay!
The boys wanted their journals and drew people who needed personal space.
Personal space is tough lately and somedays I focus on everything that is NOT going well. And my kids start to focus on it too. And all I want is a quiet moment to think and reflect and all they want is a quiet moment to cuddle and tickle and reconnect. Things are awesome and awful, alternating so as to make us crazy.
So I’ll leave you with this: my kids clinging to my legs, sobbing. Because the whole day was NOT filled with Awesome Things. And I guess that is just Life.
