On Thurssday my son and I went to the park. It was supposed to be a quick 1 mile trek and then playing on the toys afterwards but as we walked, I realized we needed this time to ourselves. We needed to appreciate each other in a new way and boy did we do that and more. We talked (best he can) about all kinds of things. We took breaks and ate snacks and we watched the other runners go by us. It was a blast and even though it was an insane work out for me (3.25 miles pushing a 20lb stroller with a 30 lb toddler and 75% of it gravel) it was so worth every second and a ton of fun!
Today was extremely stressful. Yesterday our car drove its final miles and broke down on me. It was a complete disaster but God is providing us with a new car. I didn't think it would work out but we should have a new car on Monday. So after all the stress and my inability to keep my emotional eating in check all I wanted to do was stop being an adult. So I did. My son and I built a blanket fort and for about 2 hours we hid it playing dinosaur games on the kindle and cutting out the rest of the world. Its amazing how just going into our children s worlds for a minute can really put new perspective on things.
Have a Happy Easter everyone!
