Just re-reading a past post about a different kind of summer.
Wow. I was so insightful a year ago. I always go into summer thinking that I need to get my kids moving in all directions. They have to be active and stimulated, and God forbid it be me that has that responsibility. I needed so badly to read that post from last year where I realized that they are tired. They need a break from the running, from the having to be somewhere, from the waking up early and being “on.” Yes, my daughter needs her therapy. And yes, I will get her there.
But it is ok to miss a day here and there, and to be lazy, and to be bored for awhile. To find something to do without me orchestrating their lives. It is all ok. I have to remember that now, in June, instead of having it hit me over the head 6 weeks in again.
