Ice Cream To Thank Him

This morning while I was half asleep laying in bed, Titus came into my room and asked if he could change Cosette's diaper. I said sure so he took her into the girl's bedroom. I remembered we'd just put a live video camera in there so I started watching them on my phone.
This morning while I was half asleep laying in bed, Titus came into my room and asked if he could change Cosette's diaper.
Cosette is at the stage where she doesn't stay still so I watched the funniest scene play out of Titus taking off a poo diaper and screaming because she was rolling around. He wrangled her to wipe her and struggled to get her to stay still long enough for him to put a new one on. It made me laugh so much. It also made me proud because he knew she needed her diaper changed and I wasn't up yet, so he took initiative to take care of it. He also worked really hard to accomplish the task.

He's my wonderful, responsible, caring seven year old. We took him for some ice cream to thank him.

"Mummy, please can I make my own toast?" - Albie, age 4.
From finding the food to spreading the jam,
managed to do this all "by his own" (his words).

Kindness is a choice.
Giving is a choice.
Respect is a choice.
Whatever choice you make makes you.
Choose wisely.

Hands Free

I’m letting go of distraction, disconnection, and perfection, to live a life that simply, so very simply, consists of what really matters.
I’m becoming Hands Free. I want to make memories, not to-do lists. I want to feel the squeeze of my child’s arms, not the pressure of overcommitment. I want to get lost in conversation with the people I love, not consumed by a sea of unimportant emails. I want to be overwhelmed by sunsets that give me hope, not by overloaded agendas that steal my joy. I want the noise of my life to be a mixture of laughter and gratitude, not the intrusive buzz of cell phones and text messages. I’m letting go of distraction, disconnection, and perfection, to live a life that simply, so very simply, consists of what really matters.

Relationships

Relationships sometimes wind up on autopilot.
Slow down.
Sit for coffee and have a conversation.
Remember to ask open-ended questions.
Hold hands, maybe?
But above all, be in the moment.
